All pictures shown are for illustration purpose only. Actual label may vary due to changes between vintages.
A generous bouquet of ripe fruit and spice carried through to the well-textured palate - a treat for the senses.
Ruby-red colour with delicate garnet hues on the edge. Fruity aromas, including blueberry, cherry and macerated black cherry, pervade the nose first. However, the tertiary notes provided by the lengthy ageing are what stand out most here. Cinnamon, tobacco, tea leaf, roasted coffee bean and, lastly, subtle hints of leather are the main descriptors. Elegant spices, such as white pepper, cloves and cinnamon, round off the sensory journey. The velvety, silky smooth tannins are mature and compact.
