Dark red in colour with black shaded edges and a brick red hue. Spicy dark cherry aromas mingle with earth, hints of rose petal, tobacco, dried herbs and leather. Mid weighted and possessing a firm tannic backbone savoury red currant and dark cherry flavours are interwoven with earthy tobacco, old leather and spicy dried herb elements. Dry stern finish with a classic rustic aftertaste.

Other Reviews....
Ripe berry, baking spice, menthol and blue flower aromas shape the lovely nose. Juicy and elegantly structured, the savory palate doles out raspberry compote, mature Marasca cherry, star anise and cinnamon before closing on a hint of hazelnut. Taut, refined tannins provide lithe support. It's already delicious and accessible but will also provide several years or more of pleasure. Drink 2022–2027.
