Aged for 12 months in French oak. Outstanding depth of colour featuring an inky black heart and a deep dark red black hue. Refined aromatics of red to black currants infused with cedary tobacco characters are followed by black olive, dried herbs and a whiff of spicy capsicum. The elegant medium bodied palate has an appealing smooth textural quality to it with spicy red to black currant fruits flowing over a cedary tobacco, faint black olive and dried herb back drop. Very finely grained tannins are well integrated finishing with a medium to long aftertaste that shows finesse.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
Some bell-pepper notes here with blackcurrants and violets. The palate has a succulent, tangy feel with bright, ripe blackcurrant flavors and soft, pastry-like tannin. Special 150th anniversary edition. Drink or hold.
