Complex melange of cassis, spice, tobacco leaf and fruitcake with a whiff of violets adding a lift. The palate replicates waht the nose offers up with superb harmony of fruit and oak. Ample ripe black fruit, Christmas pudding, spice and cigarbox - all beautifully underpinned by refined oaking. This wine is like a ballroom dancer, gliding around in white tie and tails! Lithe, supple, elegant and effortlessly silky smooth and regal. The aftertaste lingers long after the mouthfeel has been enjoyed.
