Delightful interplay of blackcurrant, cassis, violet perfume and an earthy richness. The wine feels silky, supple and smooth when first it hits the palate. Flavours of dark berry fruit, Christmas pudding, cigar box and spice then make their presence felt. Beautifully poised and balanced with neither fruit not oak dominating. Good backbone and lithe body. The oak is sympathetic and supportive. A delightful blend with an aftertaste which goes on and on, making it ideal for food.
