Deep dark red colour with subtle tinges of black to the edges and a light red hue. Prominent red to dark cherry aromas infused with dried herbs intermix with forest floor, dried meats and spicy cedar. Delicious red to dark cherry and winter strawberry fruits along with dried herb and clove elements have a very savoury appeal to them. Some meaty characters, forest floor and spicy cedar flow onto the back half. Supple feel with excellent power and polished tannins leading into a long moreish aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years

Other Reviews….
I was wrong. This hasn’t been released at the same time as the 2017; it’s slated for release in October 2019.
Forewarned.
It’s an out-and-out ripper. Smoky, bunchy, well-fruited, dense, finessed, so many things. Powerful lines delivered with grace. It’s excellent throughout but the finish has that extra something. Drink 2020-2027+
