Matured for 20 months in old French oak. Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Lifted aniseed aromas meld into toasty vanillin oak, clove, earth and spice. Rich toasty aniseed flavours meet up with notions of clove, scorched earth and spice. The toasty clove characters quite prominent leaving a touch of bitterness on the finish. Plush mid palate with velvety tannins and a medium length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Alc. 14.5%
