The 2017 Poetry from Cliff Lede is an absolutely exceptional. It begins with seductive aromas of ripe blackberries, dark currants and blueberries, which are followed by fresh tilled loam, violets, exotic spices, graphite, licorice, dark chocolate and crushed gravel that all come together. The palate is full-bodied, layered, and structured with beautifully polished tannins. It goes on to impress as it displays wonderful concentration, with delicious dark fruits and exotic spices that continue to resonate through the long voluptuous finish. This is amongst one of the most impressive wines from the vintage and while it is already drinking beautifully, it also has excellent aging potential.
