Ultra dark, intense, opaque & concentrated. Very youthful with cerise rim. Exuberant cassis fruit on the nose, black cherry, blackcurrant & nettle-bush followed by cigar box, red earth & hints of minerality. The wine is full bodied with a concentrated fruit core wrapped by lush, sleek tannins and an earthy minerality. Refreshingly dry on the finish, the wine has a prolonged pleasant aftertaste.
15 - 20 years, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions.
