    Patience is a virtue, plenty of which has been required waiting for the release oour second vintage of The Cenosilicaphobic Cat. The 2007 was met with rapturous support, the small volume selling out quickly. For those who have been anticipating the 2010, the wait has been worth it. Five and a half years of gentle nurturing has ensured that upon release this wine displays a raft of vibrant primary flavours suitably accompanied by more developed, complex characters. The nose is awash with punchy red currants and liquorice, supported by a whiff of leather and hint of dried prune and fig. The influence of the Cinsault on the final blend is evidenced through subtle lavender and spicy aromas. The palate is marked by an incredible line of acid and tannin, vibrant and grippy, akin to crunching into fresh pomegranate seeds. Quite linear in nature but with a moreish rhubarb like sweetness that endeavours to tame the graphite like astringency. This wine is unapologetically all about structure, exhibiting an abundance of tannin, but the tannins are so fine and layered that they leave your mouth watering and will have you going back for more. Quite simply, this is the definition of a food wine!
