Tasted 3rd of June, 2018
Appearance: Lustrous deep rich red, dark core, medium colour density.
Aroma: Intriguing spice. Sage leaves and red berry fruits, bitter cherries, fresh earth, five spice, rose petal, incense.
Flavour: Lithe, mineral palate. Mid-weight, distinctly savoury. Very fine-grained tannin. Delicious and refreshing underlying acid frame and campari-like bitterness. Very long flavours. Medium-bodied but profound flavour depth. Greatly rewards a pre-decant to open the aromas.
