The deep, dark colour gives a hint of what's to come: blue- and black berry fruit with notes of freshly turned earth, pencil shavings and a brush of dried oreganum. The palate is equally complex and inviting with those rich, ripe, dark berry notes - but bright and inviting, not muscular and heavy. Spicy with graphite, licorice and more than a hint of ink. Complex, layered and refined with beautifully supply dry, fine tannin from integrated oak. Long, lithe and pliable on the finish.
