Tasting Notes

Dark cherry and mulberry fruit, with notes of smoke and tar on top, this is a big, assertive wine on first inspection. On the palate, this doesn't let up, intensifying further with earthiness, spice and licquorice. Dense and with plenty of muscle, there is plenty packed in here which needs time to fully resolve. A little raw at present on the finish but no doubts about the star quality. Drink 2019-2030+. 17
