Aromas of ripe dark cherries, liquorice and dark plum intermingle with light earth and spicy herb notes. Juicy dark cherry, plum and subtle liquorice fruits are backed by ripe chewy tannins with notions of vanillin cedar, earth and spice also apparent. Fresh acidity finishing with a firm dark fruited aftertaste.

    Other Reviews…..
    Hand-picked with the inclusion of 5% shiraz, 4 days cold soak, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, 15 months in used oak. A complex, medium to full-bodied tempranillo with greater weight and complexity than most, including black and purple fruits. Drink by 2030.
