Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark brick red hue. Pronounced aromatics of drak ripe cherries, liquorice and black plums are intertwined with earthy dark chocolate, vanillin oak and spicy leather. Medium to full bodied with a plushly textured mouthfeel there’s still an ample amount of rich fruit present including black plums, liquorice and ripe dark cherries which sit atop earthy leather infusions, old vanillin cedar and spice. Velvet smooth tannins concluding with a long aftertaste of ripe dark cherries, black plums, liquorice, earthy vanillin cedar, subtle leather and spice.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.

Other Reviews…
The 2006 The Pict is 100% Mataro (Mourvedre) aged in 100% new French oak for 24 months. The fruit was sourced from one section of a vineyard planted in 1927. Purple-colored, it offers up an aromatic array of smoky oak, forest floor, black truffle, blueberry, and blackberry jam. On the palate it reveals a brawny, masculine personality with some austerity that should round out with a few years of additional bottle age. It should offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2026.
