Cellar: 6 - 8 Years (2025-2027)
ABV: 13.5%
Closure: Cork
Deep dark red core with black tinged edges and a light red to brick red hue. Red to dark cherry aromas subtlety laced with the scent of roses are offered up by the nose. Earthy cedar, tobacco and spicy garden herb notes follow on. Lighter and more elegant than the 2015 the palate has refined dark and dried cherry fruit infused with fresh herbs. Tightly wound, assertive, rustic tannins impart some grip to the finish. Nuances of earth, light tobacco and spice are also evident. Vibrant acidity with a very chewy medium to long aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.

Other Reviews…..
Sweet-smelling dried red cherries, potpourri and herbal accents, all leading to a medium-weight palate. Has approachable, easy, red-berry flavors. A lighter style. Drink or hold.
