...extraordinary nose of blackberries, white chocolate, licorice, tobacco leaf, smoky barbecue, charcoal and a burning ember-like note... A dense, luscious, full-bodied, opulent style, with sweet tannin, this locked and loaded, intense...
Lively aromas of cassis, licorice and violet. Sweet and lush but juicy, with a strong chocolatey character and excellent underlying backbone. Very densely packed... Finishes with lingering licorice and bitter chocolate notes.
Firm, intense and vibrant, featuring a complex, focused core of earthy currant, sage, black licorice and mineral. Full-bodied, yet sleek and trim on the finish, where the flavors are slow to unfold.
Rich yet energetic and well-structured. Ripe blackcurrant and black cherry, with anise, vanilla and mocha notes lurking in the background. This wine has a reputation for ageing beautifully over decades.
