The nose is dark, intense and brooding with aromas of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco, espresso and subtle whiffs of perfume. The dark fruit character of the nose follows through onto an exceptionally complex, juicy palate with gentle nuances of ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves, and liquorice. The mid-palate is focused, lithe and elegant with very fine, cocoa powdery tannins. The wine is medium bodied, very balanced with an earthy, layered character, covering the entire spectrum of berry fruit - from tart red plums to rich blue and black berries. The finish is svelte, clean and dry, peppery and lingering, with hints of dried cranberry, tar, graphite and smoke.
This full-bodied, mouth-filling wine boasts flavours of cherries, tobacco and dark chocolate which are underpinned by a good tannic structure.
Blackcurrant and prunes with smoky, spicy undertones laced with berry and fruit. Full bodied with delicate spices followed by prunes and plums - good tannic backbone
