NOSE

In no way bashful, aromatics need little encouragement to leap from glass – with or without a swirl! Savoury, and dare one say, Rhônish. Cold meats, pan jus, cinnamon. Only 23% Grenache?! Would never have guessed…! All the reds: raspberry, red liquorice, dark red berried-fruits, red jelly-bean aromas.

PALATE

Medium to full-bodied. Substantial… structually verging on lush/viscous during this youthful developmental phase. Yet to completely unfurl – a suggestion of kirsch, maraschino… fruitcake mix. White chocolate and mocha flavours/‘powderiness’ confusingly merge with softened rounded tannins.
