Matured in French oak puncheons of which 20% was new. Inky black at its heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Aromas of blackberries, liquorice and dark plums fill the nostrils with lightly smoked vanillin cedar, confectionary and pepper notes ensuing. Rich yet understated in it’s power, silky blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits caress the palate overlapping a back drop of lightly smoked vanillin cedar, fennel and pepper. Slick and plush in its feel with velvet smooth tannins and a nicely balanced freshness. Long, opulent yet refined aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.2%
