On the nose, bright blueberry, black cherry, plum and red liquorice characters are accompanied by hints of violet, dried herbs, hazelnut and mocha.
On the palate cassis, blackberry, dark cherry and plum flavours are framed by lashings of tobacco, liquorice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Additionally, subtle background nuances of charcuterie and tapenade add further complexity to the wine. Structurally the wine is powerful yet resolved. A supple, fleshy mouthfeel is carried by a thread of lively acidity giving the impression of line, length and drive.
