The visual aspect of the wine is a sumptuous, intense ruby red colour. On the nose it is both complex and pleasing with aromas of ripe red and black fruits which marry perfectly with the notes of liquorice and chocolate. On the elegant, beautifully dense palate, we can detect hints of spiciness overlaid with smoky, peppery woodiness. The tannins are persistent and tightly knit with a finesse which allows an astonishingly prolonged aftertaste. This is a thoroughbred of a wine encompassing elegant, enduring quality. Although quite magnificent now, if you can hide it away somewhere for a few years, you will not be disappointed!
