Tasting Notes

Rich, voluptuous black fruit presents itself with cordial-like concentration and power. Sweet spice and fruit reminiscent of Black Forest Cake, with some notes of vanilla and milk chocolate from the oak, as well as trimmings of varietal sweet banana and smoke.

The fruit profile is lush and ripe, but in a dense and solid frame of fine grained tannins that will secure ageing. Higgo Jacobs

5 - 8 years cellaring at stable, cool temperature.br /
