Tasting notes

Deep, dense red with bluish tints. The nose is intense and generous, revealing notes of blueberries and blackberries, followed by delicately toasted notes as the wine opens up. The palate is broad and concentrated, nice and fresh on entry, disclosing lovely red fruit flavours along with powerful, smooth tannins. The finish is long-lingering with slightly smoky notes and develops a touch of liquorice over time. Best decanted 10-15 minutes before drinking. Ageing potential: 5 years.
