"2009 sees the return of Tabor. Sounds like an Arnie film circa Conan. Anyway, this is the 100% Mataro from winemaker Pete Schell. Meaty, gamey, feral aromatics, with a little ironstone and something earthy. The palate feels, lively and light, surprising for the inherent concentration; a welcome anomaly. Fresh red berries follow with hot spice and bitter herbs, then forest berries - it flows. It has a formed, slippery feel but there is chiaroscuro of fruit, spice and acidity throughout the wine. Savoury, then tobacco and earthy notes finish the wine with a sprinkle of pepper for good measure. Throws interesting shapes, drinks superbly, will live for a while too."

A single-site Mataro that is a very grounded and composed young wine: dark plums, some cassis, orange zest, dry loamy, earthly aromas and wild herbs too. The palate's nicely laced up with a core or red- and purple-berry fruits - very smooth - and lazy tannins, laid-back, soft and even, and gently nutty through the finish. Plenty of charm and concentration here.
