Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Spicy dark raspberry, liquorice and red cherry scents infused with pepper sail from the glass with subtle scorched earth and fresh herb scents also evident. Rich, juicy and spicy the moreish palate is awash with dark raspberry and liquorice fruits which meld into a scorched earth, herbs du Provence and peppered meat back drop. Good flesh with a sturdy tannin structure and energetic acidity providing the framework. Concludes long, succulent and peppery.
