Earthy, umami, forest floor, and savoury with hints of cherry and clove aromas with high intensity. On the medium-full bodied palate, this has chalky tannins and nice savoury aroma replays plus some dark berry and blackberry flavours. Acids are very good. Rustic, savoury and earthy on the long finish. Tasted Sept/2017.
