Very deep dark red core with a black tinged outskirts and dark red hue. Spicy dark raspberry and cherry aromas have a delicate incense like overlay with subtle earth and fragrant herb notes ensuing. Rich juicy plum, liquorice and bright raspberry fruits decorate the palate with infusions of Provincial herbs and earth lying underneath. Spicy finish with lively acidity and silky tannins. Long expressive aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Hand-picked, crushed, open or closed fermentation, matured for 11 months in large-format French oak. A glorious display of red fruits of all kinds dance on the palate. It's no wimp - there are plenty of tannins and acidity to keep the attention, and better still, there are no oak armpits to avoid. Special value. Drink by 2037.
