Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/09/2016

Appearance

Clear but so dark in colour that its almost opaque, very deep black-cherry red.

Aroma

Pungent blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant with cracked black pepper, earthy leather, vanilla, balsamic and tobacco leaf.

Taste

Rich blackberry, plum and redcurrant with accompanying bold fruit tannins, dry toasty oak, cocoa and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long lingering red fruit, caramel, bitter tannins and black pepper spice.

Overall

Rich red berry fruit, dry tannins, toasty oak and enlivening black pepper spice presented in a full-bodied red with a long dry finish. Needs to be accompanied by food and will stand up to bold flavoured dishes.
