Dark and dense in appearance. Nose is sweet with vanilla, black cherries, savoury spices and black licorice. Still very youthful at almost 3 years of age, this will need time to settle in. The palate is intense with dark chocolate, plum jam, dried figs, a burst of red currant and mouthwatering tannins. Still a baby at the time of release and will benefit from a few more years of bottle age.
