Saturated almost black colour. Deep, brooding nose with complex flavours promising excellent maturation potential. Seamlessly woven layers of dark fruit, oak aromatics and sweet spice entice thoughts of seductive Arabian nights. Massively structured with plush velvet texture and an almost endless finish. Achieves elegance despite blockbuster proportions.
