Sweet and spicy notes intermixed with white chocolate, black currant, crushed rock, and some underbrush and floral scents.
Blackcurrant, black raspberry syrup, mocha and tobacco on the nose...with impressive fat and captivating plummy fruit.
Graceful as ever, with vibrant black cherry and currant fruit backed by sturdy tannins, refreshing acidity, and hints of dried herbs and oak spice. Medium-full and expertly balanced, with great length and generosity.
