Inky dark black
A complex bouquet of dark cherry, mint, smoke, plums, incense, ginger, roasted meats and savoury spice; its intensity is backed with graphite and crushed rock
The fruit starts out very concentrated with an underlying purity that is focused and very layered. The tannins are rounded and show a lovely density, resulting in a coating mouthfeel with flavours of plum, spice and white pepper. It's very clean on the finish and lingers effortlessly on a very long palate.
