    Dark colour; opulent, rich and mouthfilling; chocolate, vanilla and mocha provide much of the energy, though there is plenty of blackberry/licorice fruit. Intense vibrant purple, black colour. Lifted complex aromas of berry, cherry, blackcurrant fruit, chocolate and mocha with subtle integrated oak complexity of vanilla and cigar box. The palate has lashings of fruitcake, rum & raison and chocolate. The structure is very rich, thick and concentrated with a well integrated full palate and ripe complex fruit.
