(From 2010 Vintage) Pure and direct, this rich, potent mix of red and black fruit offers touches of currant, spice, dried herb, tobacco leaf, black licorice and cedar, ending with a pleasing road tar and loamy earth aftertaste, and tannins that caress and grip.
(From 2008 Vintage) Bright dark red. Polite, very pure aromas of cassis, black cherry and spices. Supple on entry, then quite tight in the middle, with bright cherry and raspberry fruit dominating. Fine-grained but not particularly sweet, showing a peppery reserve today.
