Tasting Notes

Power and concentration, within a tightly woven structure showing lots of promise. Youthful tannins are grippy now, but appetising and balanced by generous cassis and black berries as well as vanilla and spice from oak. Complex and multi-dimensional - further inspection also reveals sour Morello cherry, plum and even wild fig. Those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring.

Ageing Potential

5 - 8 years maturation should greatly reward with complexity and elegance.
