Dark smoky cherry and spicy oak make for an intense nose. The palate is taut and chiselled with firmly structured tannins which are balanced by the supple black fruit, subtle meaty depths and chalky core. The finish is fresh, attractive and lingering and there is plenty more still to come. Drink from 2021.
