Deep dark red black tinged core with a dark red hue. Expressive dark to black cherry, anise and dark plum scents are followed by some earth, subtlety toasted cedar and spice. Amply weighted the palate is loaded with rich dark to black cherry, dark plum and anise flavours. Toasty cedar and earth characters linger underneath. Spicy finish with polished tannins and a generously fruited conclusion.

Other Reviews…..
Shows lovely precision, with ripe black cherry flavours at the core, plus notes of red licorice, oolong tea and white pepper as well as a touch of fresh earth that lingers.
