(2010 Vintage) The nose is intense with a pleasant balance of wood and fruit which notes of vanilla, ripened cherries and plums. Secondary aromas of leather and liquorice are also present. The texture in the mouth is smooth with balanced flavours echoing the nose. The tannins are fine and the finish is long and elegant.
International Wine CellarInky purple. Dark berry and plum aromas, with complicating licorice and espresso qualities. Firm dried cherry and blackcurrant on the palate, with solid tannins adding more structure. A distinctly masculine style, finishing with youthfully clenched bitter cherry and dark chocolate character. Needs time.
