Very deep dark red black core with a very dark red hue. Lifted aromatics of ripe dark raspberries, liquorice, dark plum and a hint of dark chocolate rise out of the glass with subtle earthy vanillin cedar and spice ensuing. Rich and seductive there’s a feeling of great opulence to the mouthfeel, the palate saturated with decadently ripe dark raspberry, liquorice and black cherry flavours which merge into some chocolatey vanillin cedar, earth and spice. Fleshy and round with silken tannins the palate boasts fantastic concentration and power. Very lengthy finish of succulent dark raspberries, chocolate bullets, black cherries, vanillin cedar, earth and spice.
