Rich dark plum, liquorice and blackberry fruits are layered across the refined mid weighted palate with a gorgeous textural feel. Vanillin cedar, subtle scorched earth and peppered fennel like characters lie underneath. Seamlessly integrated velvet smooth tannins. Concludes long, enveloping and silky.

Other Reviews….
Best's celebrates old vines. Bin O is a case in point, with vines dating back to 1868 employed here to produce a stunning and elegant beauty. Bin O's signature black fruits, woody spice and violets are concentrated and deep, followed by velvety tannins that effortlessly glide over the tongue. Quite a powerful combination. Drink by 2041.
