Aged in French oak for 18 months. Impenetrable black as night colour with a deep dark red black hue. Intense liquorice, ripe blackberry and black cherry scents fill the nostrils trailed by smoky vanillin cedar, fennel and earthy blackpepper notes. Rich and full in body, the palate is brimming with opulent liquorice, blackberry and black cherry fruits which overlay lightly charred vanillin cedar, fennel, earth and blackpepper. Excellent concentration and depth with a plush feel, nicely balanced acidity and velvety yet sturdy tannins. Concludes rich and powerful yet still somewhat refined.
