Superb colour featuring an inky black heart and a deep bright dark red black hue. Nosing offers up black cherry and liquorice aromas infused with blackpepper followed by vanillin cedar, dried meats and subtle earthy graphite notes. Medium bodied with an elegant cool climate feel the palate serves up a rich flavour profile of black cherries and liquorice over vanillin cedar, provincial herbs and light earthy graphite. Meaty like in its feel it finishes with a burst of black and white pepper. Fine grained tannins and energetic acidity provide great structure. The aftertaste long, refined and sculptured.

Other Reviews….
This is almost black, with a shot of red/purple. It's not a wallflower. There are plenty of steadfast grainy tannins reined in by a ribbon of acidity. Smells great, tastes even better: black cherries, exotic spices plus sumac, the flavours are intense and satisfying. It opens up more and more, revealing a gloss across the full-bodied palate. Drink by 2033.
