Dense midnight black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Nosing offers up ripe blackcurrant and earthy black olive aromas followed by some cedary tobacco characters and spicy dried herb notes. Medium to full in body rich blackcurrant fruits dominate over black olive, scorched earth, cigar box and spicy dried herb characters. Slightly dryish, sturdily built tannin structure with a generous medium to long conclusion.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14%

Other Reviews….
A 56/34/10% estate blend, open-fermented, 7-14 days on skins, pressed to French oak (25% new) for 16 months, the components managed separately before blending. In the seductive, generous and soft style that is the hallmark of Victory Point. Drink by 2029.
