An outstanding ‘essay’ in concentration of flavour. Opaque black purple colour, with purple hue and strong colour cling to the walls of the glass. Magnificent nose of violets, blackberry, confectionary, prune, spice and liquorice allsorts. The palate lives up to all expectations of the nose. Mouth filling, with flavours of vanilla, spice, plum, cedar and blackberry. Velvet smooth tannins, excellent balance, with exceptionally long aftertaste of liquorice, blackberry and blackpepper. Limited Stocks.

Other reviews... Clean and quite fragrant; abundant blackberry and dark chocolate fruit; controlled extract and good balance.
