Aged in new French oak barrels. Black as night at its heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Wafting through the olfactory senses are hedonistic scents of ripe blackberry, liquorice and black cherry followed by toasty vanillin oak, a whiff of dark chocolate, earth and blackpepper. Rich and layered with opulence the palate sports a lavish flavour profile of liquorice, blackberry, dark plum and black cherry fruits. Vanillin oak, peppered fennel and subtle scorched earth characters lie underneath. Despite the large scaled nature of the palate, remarkably its still holds onto some freshness. Velvet smooth tannins displaying superb depth and power with a long lush conclusion.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
