Tasting Notes: Perfumed nose of spicy dark berry with slightly floral and toasted notes. On the palate shows good concentration of ripe dark fruit flavours, licorice, tobacco and spices, freshness and minerality with good depth. Round with enveloping and balanced tannins, displays good acidity. Great length and displaying a sweet character on the finish.
Notes: It is recommended to decant the wine. It will continue to evolve over the next 2 – 3 years, although it could be drank from the first moment it will gain complexity over the years.
