Written Notes

Medium deep colour. Fresh dark cherry cassis chocolate aromas. Rich and inky with smooth dark cherry cassis fruits, fine slinky dry/ grainy textures and mocha oak. Finishes firm and minerally. Fruit powers off at the finish leaving a chalky dry plume. 91 points
  • 91p
Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Initially slightly closed, opens up well, ripe fruit and hints of roasting aroma, quite opulent approach. On the palate well structured with ripe tannins, fine acidity and elegant fruit, very persistent on the palate.
