The nose has fragrance and freshness the start of the palate brambles and sloes. Rich and ripe in the middle lots of fleshy black plums, black truffles and black cherries supple and velvety. The tannins are fine and integrated and although there is herbal freshness at the back a hint of peppery spice and tobacco the finish has rich fruit depth of flavour.
