Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Elevated ripe blackcurrant, blueberry, dark plum and liquorice aromas overlay subtle vanillin cedar, dried herb and spice notes. Medium weight with good flesh and richness yet still elegant the palate is generously flavoured with ripe red to blackcurrant, blueberry and plum flavours which are delicately infused with dried herbs. Some liquorice and subtle cedary tobacco elements are also present. Very fine grained, quite polished tannins are well integrated. Concludes with an aftertaste of red to blackcurrant, ripe blueberry, subtle liquorice, dried herbs, cedary tobacco characters and spice.

Other Reviews….
Aromas of blackberry and walnut with hints of flowers. Medium body, focused and bright with dried fruit and just a hint of mushroom in the aftertaste. Drink now.
