Intense and fragrant, sporting cherry, liquorice, leather and spice aromas and flavours, with an underlying mineral element that melds with the tannins to leave a chalky sensation on the finish. Very harmonious and long.
An incredibly rich and powerful wine... Those oak-driven notes of spice and toasted nut will require many more years of bottle ageing until they fully integrate, but the wine certainly shows the girth and consistency to bring it forward over time. Lingering notes of mocha, espresso, cola, dark spice, plum and dried blackberries complete the finish.
Very pretty aromas of plums, chocolate, berry and flowers. Full body, with an orange peel, plum and nutty edge to it. Chocolate too. Delicious.
