Marco Abella - Clos Abella 2009
Dark ruby color. Quite a lot of funk in the nose, animal, dank, reductive notes of cabbage as well, spicy anise and dark licorice, notes of newer oak still linger, but this chewy bell pepper aspect stays prevalent. Very flat fruit on the palate, tannins still quite tight and grippy but with little push for the finish.
