(From 2008 Vintage) Saturated inky black crimson red color with deep black crimson hue. The nose displays an intense aromatic profile at the dark end of the spectrum. Ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate scents are followed by some cedar and spice end notes. Opulent, rich and concentrated the palate delivers mouthfilling flavors of ripe blackberry and liquorice followed by some dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice. Slightly firmish but perfectly balanced tannins. Superb depth with long ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and spicy cedar aftertaste.
