Deep garnet red with purplish highlights. Red fruit aromas (raspberry, black currant), with a hint of liquorice. Good attack, round and elegant wine with concentrated and gentle tannins. The final is on blackcurrant, raspberry and spicy (pepper) aromas when it is young.
A very rich, authoritative style, with broad structure and lots of cocoa and dark fig paste notes leading the way for ample charcoal, roasted alder, espresso and steeped black currant fruit. Rich and long, this has the depth for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024. WS 94
