Superbly ripe and intensely expressed, the bouquet shows blackberry jam, dried cherry, cedar, smoked game and dark mushroom characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is dense and powerful.
The wine offers sweet fruit richness together with spicy oak notes and deep savoury nuances, finishing impressively long and velvety.
