The medium+ intensity nose offers blackberry, black plum, sweet oak, and chocolate notes. On the medium+ bodied palate, this has dark fruit, black tea, blackberry, dark currant and oak spice flavours supported by juicy acids and supple tannins. The finish length is very good. Tasted Sept/2017. Score: 88+ pts
