Deep and typical on the nose with blackcurrants, black tea, leather and graphite. The aromas draw you down to the palate. Full-bodied, creamy and beautiful with extremely polished, refined tannins. Yet, it’s powerful and long.
...notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries, warm blackcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by emerging notions of smoked meats, fragrant earth, crushed rocks and lilacs with touches of cast-iron pan and Marmite toast. Medium-bodied, the palate is deceptively light and quite ethereal... Framed by exquisitely ripe, wonderfully fine-grained tannins, it has exhilarating freshness and a very long, hypnotically perfumed finish.
...poised, gathering freshness and good acidity in the same structured container as the pure black-currant fruits.
...warmed black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, entwined with bay leaf, tobacco, savory, lilac, smoldering charcoal and warm cast iron notes.
...ample, richly constituted wine... Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice, spice and menthol develop in the glass...
...classy, elegant style...complex notes of red and black currants, lead pencil, and cedary herbs, medium-bodied richness and depth, and both present tannins and acidity.
Dark, savoury black fruit...balanced... Tannins very fine. Fresh and really quite soft, textural finesse... Savoury graphite finish.
