Masculine, edgy and powerful with intriguing aromas of blackberry, dried herbs, dark chocolate, spice and ink. Grippy with firm tannin on the palate and concentrated flavours of spice, bing cherry, coffee bean, blackberry, old leather and a certain meatiness. Enjoy with steak au poivre or grilled lamb with rosemary.

Nose seemed rather closed but shows black fruits and violet aromas. Medium-bodied with flavours of red fruits, cranberry and sour cherry. Finish is short-medium in length. Structured, big tannins will reward ageing 1-2 years.
