Matured for 24 months in small French oak casks. Totally opaque inky black colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Scented aromas of ripe blackberries, black cherries and liquorice interplay with smoky cedar, a subtle meatiness and spicy vanilla. Full bodied, rich and powerful but showing excellent control the palate boasts mouthfilling flavours of blackberries, liquorice and black cherries with a smoky overlay followed by vanillin cedar and peppered dried meats. Long structured finish with fine grained, slightly chewy tannins possessing an underlying firmness. Very long and persistent aftertaste of liquorice, blackberries, smoky vanillin cedar and spicy dried meats.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews....
Deep violet color. A heady, complex bouquet displays aromas of ripe dark berries and floral pastilles, with a spicy topnote and a smoky mineral accent. Sweet, deeply concentrated boysenberry and cherry-vanilla flavors are sharpened by a spicy nuance and a hint of cola that builds with aeration. Closes with superb energy and breadth, leaving sweet violet pastille and spicecake notes on the gently tannic finish. Drink 2020 - 2025.
