(2014 Vintage) Colour: Deep dark red tending bright red at the meniscus. Aroma: Notes of spiced plum, blueberry pie with hits of musk stick, warm vanilla and pain grille. Palate: Full bodied with lashings of spice, plums, blueberry jam and milk chocolate. Tannins are round, bold and chewy then tighten through the finish. Hedonistic in style with complexing notes of mocha coffee beans, vanilla pod and clove. Incredibly long and persistant through the finish.
