Complex aromatics, with blackcurrant, black cherries, tobacco leaf, burnt toast and savoury spices. Full bodied. Well balance with concentrated flavour, crisp acidity and dusty tannins. A rich and intense wine, which would benefit from 3-4 years in your cellar. This wine as the potential to score 91-92 in 3 to 4 years. Would strongly recommend.
