Matured in some new but predominantly older French and American oak barriques for 18 months. Magnificent colour saturation featuring an inky black heart along with a very deep black dark red hue. Sailing out of the glass are aromas of dark plum and liquorice infused with smoky cedar and graphite followed by some dried meat and blackpepper notes. Rich, plush and youthfully energetic the generously weighted palate is swamped with luscious, freshly crushed blackberry, liquorice and blueberry fruits. Fine grained tannin structure with inky earth, spicy vanillin cedar and pepper characters lingering through the back half. Finishes fresh, long and succulent with plenty of blackpepper shining through.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%
