Opens with powerful aromas of cedar, toasty oak and vanilla perfume framing ripe black currant and mocha. Turns wonderfully smooth in the mouth. Plump and ripe in cherry and currant fruit, it’s beautiful now, but has the tannins and balance to last forever.
Cassis fruit, with aromas of forest, dill and a funky leathery note. Black-currant, berry and chocolate flavors predominate. Rich, almost creamy mouthfeel, with a nice finish of medium length and moderate tannins.
