Magnificent colour saturation displaying an impenetrable pitch black core with an equally deep dark purple black hue. Pronounced black cherry, liquorice and blackberry aromas sail out of the glass over a back drop of vanilla, cedar, faint scorched earth, hints of fennel and pepper. Prodigiously rich fruit is framed by rippling tannins and vibrant acidity which impart a muscular feel. Concentrated yet tightly built the palate is awash with lavish blackberry, black cherry and liquorice flavours. Firm yet perfectly integrated tannin structure. Very powerful with a long blackberry, liquorice, black cherry, spicy vanilla, cedar and pepper aftertaste.
