Deep plum with a garnet rim. Bright exuberant aromatics of spice, tilled earth, ripe red fruits and hints of cedar and sandalwood. Complexing notes of dried herb, blueberry and oyster sauce. A brooding, powerful core of earth and dark chocolate, underwritten by the darker, more savoury notes of grilled meats, wood smoke and graphite. Structurally quite shy initially but finishing on the palate savoury and with firm fine tannin structure providing wonderful length and textural intrigue.
