Helwig 2011 Maestro Bodega
The nose is intriguing. I got plum and eucalyptus. Instantly round and smooth on the palate. Lulls you into thinking is going to be a passive ride. When he arrived at the rear palate, “ba-bomp.” Out of nowhere I got this bump of tartness. A few times I got a second bump like an after shock. Shook up my reality. The tannins will be looking to hug it out. He’s a hugger folks. Tannins squeeze for a wet finish. The adventure is fairly simple but a long ride.
