Sourced from the Dorrien Block vineyard planted in the 1950’s the wine was aged in a combination of old and new American oak barrels for a period of 24 months. Impenetrable black as night heart with a very deep dark red black tinged hue. Heady black plum, liquorice and mocha scents waft through the nostrils followed by toasty vanillin oak, scorched earth and spice. Super rich, dense and liqueur like in its texture, the palate is a concentrate of black plum, liquorice and luscious black cherry fruits. Plush mouth feel with toasty vanillin oak, scorched earth and spicy mocha elements lingering on the back half. Monstrous in its size and possessing velvety tannins, there’s some heat to the long decadently powerful finish. Gotta like em big to love this one!
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
