Lifted aromas of dark chocolate, liquorice and ripe blackcurrant followed by a hint of mint. Medium to full bodied the palate delivers generous flavours of ripe blackcurrant and dark chocolate followed by a touch of mint and some earthy cedar back palate characters. Fine grained slightly dryish tannins. Excellent depth with medium to long blackcurrant, mint and earthy cedar aftertaste.
