Tasting Notes

Dark and deep purple, a riot of perfume encompassing ripe wild blackberries, violets, baked red earth, black pepper and dried thyme. Smoked meats/charcuterie, bergamot tea and black olive create a sense of excitement and wondrous joy. Complex, dense weighted palate with intense energy. Lifted perfumes of black olive tapenade, smoked meats with compounded black fruits add to the ultra-fine savoury tannin. Long, deep and complex with rich dark fruits, the vintage style has left this wine with freshness and texture for a very long and bright future ahead.
