Dark ruby. Dark mineral, ripe, sweet plum, some liquorice, candied violet, a whiff of roasting flavours, black pepper savouriness. Substantial, elegant texture, black sweet cherry, pronounced fruit, silky, but supporting tannins, concentrated, a pleasant nougat touch, ripe plum on the finish, remains very long, some mocha in the aftertaste, sure ageing potential.
