Characteristic intensity of deep red colour to the edge with its true-to-style elegant yet full barrage of complex flavours, including the normal creaminess of oak and the hint of choco-mint. Fabulously long, acid finish and sufficient supple tannins to confer a long life.
Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW - 8th August 2017
Medium deep Crimson. Intense lifted blackcurrant menthol aromas with chinotto inky notes. Well concentrated blackcurrant blackberry fruits, with menthol sage like notes, fine chocolaty but vigourous tannins and underlying mocha ginger oak complexity. Finishes firm with plenty of fruit persistency. Elemental with plenty of richness and density to offset the muscular structure. Should age for decades. 15.5% Alc 94 points – 2022-2040
