The nose is smoky with a mix of black fruits the palate has depth the richness of ripe blackcurrants cherries and damsons. Supple, velvet smooth the underpinning tannins are fine and integrated. It feels fresher at the back a herbal twist, hints of black pepper, spice, tobacco and graphite, style and elegance. The finish is full bodied rich with ripe black fruits.
