Mature, gamey nose, almost Pinot in style but the palate is fuller and serious. Delicate violet notes on the nose followed by attractive, violet fruit. Delicately made. Toffee smells on the nose and a pleasant palate with slightly ageing fruit and interesting flavour of mushroom on the finish. Complex, deep and delicious blend of tarry blackcurrant fruit with underlying richness of dried fig.
Intense aromas and excellent use of oak. Terrific structure and body with ripe, smooth, black fruit and spices on the palate. Immediately striking due to its richness and extract. Balance between the fruit and the wood is superb.
