This wine has a deep, dark, vibrant appearance with an almost plummy-red hue. The nose initially shows an intense mix of coffee, cassis, blackcurrants, blueberries and dried cherry notes. As the wine opens there are complex spiced, tarry, hung meat elements and fine-grained oak characters lifting through. The palate is intense with a mix of dark black fruits, violets, cassis and red currents which linger towards a chocolatey dried herb finish. There is an immense concentration of fruit that hangs off a central backbone that runs down the roof of your mouth which softens the wall of tannins that encapsulate this wine. The purity of fruit is superb. its long, the flavours are dominate red as it fan tails out to the finish leaving a palate texture reminiscing of home-made pastry made with real butter.
