Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Emanating from the glass are dark plum and liquorice scents which are intertwined with vanillin cedar, mint and peppered earth notes. Rich dark plum, blackberry and liquorice fruits show terrific purity and concentration with notions of scorched earth, choc mint, vanillin cedar and pepper lining the back half. Plush and succulent it possesses remarkable freshness and polished tannins. Long sumptuous conclusion.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews…..
A mellow red in a great maturity zone. Evocative pepper and green olive scents amongst plum, dark chocolate and truffle. The palate is moody and dark fruited, again we see pepper, again the green olive, there's some fig and ground hazelnut characters emerging, too. Tannins weave through the wine with grace and a light, silty texture. It feels 'fine wine' zone, poised in its distance between youth and maturity. Very enjoyable now.
