Notes of kirsch, warm blackberries and baking spices with hints of vanilla, anise and tree bark. Full-bodied and with plenty of spicy fruit, it has a medium level of velvety tannins, crisp acid and a long finish.
A savoury style, offering toasty mineral and liquorice flavours that wrap tightly around dark berry at the core, finishing lithe and focused.
Attractive aromas of spice, sweet black fruit, black olive, pepper, jam and damson. A bold and spicy jam sandwich. Fantastic effort, offering bags of ripe, fleshy vibrant fruit flavours. Good concentration.
Ripe, sweet and berryish on the nose. The palate is bold, broad and sweetly fruited with creamy blackberry fruit. Good focus.
Dense purple-crimson; the wine is all about controlled power, the fist in a velvet glove; the medium- to full-bodied palate rolls black fruits, a touch of liquorice and a generous dash of dark chocolate into a seamless whole; you know the tannins and oak are there, but no more.
