Tasting Notes:

Appealing spicy dark fruit: black cherry with cedar and a hint of tobacco.Tangy and fresh on entry. Ripe black fruit with light peppery spice notes. The textured palate is rounded and silkily smooth with multiple layers of flavour and a well-defined backbone. Good integration of oak and fruit with fine, dry tannins and an intriguing light licorice/saline element on the long tail.
