Tasting Notes:

The nose displays perfectly ripe fruit, with notes of liquorice and verbena. From a full palate the flavours build towards a rich and harmonious balance; the tannins are well-rounded, silky and creamy; underpinning the vanilla is spicy oak. Once opened up it shows blackcurrant, blackberry and fresh red fruit mingled with cedar wood notes. Well integrated tannin develop on the palate revealing a fruit flavoured concentration on the finish.
