Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/12/2013

Appearance

(bot No. 59089) Clear, deep burgundy red.

Aroma

Stewed berry fruit, red wine with tobacco leaf, red bell pepper, paprika spice and freshly cut cedar wood.

Taste

Beautifully balanced and complex with rich fruit and honey sweetness countered by oak and fruit tannins, dry spicy and earthy rootyness. Peppery spice, hints of liquorice and bitter chocolate.

Aftertaste

Flavours of coffee and toast emerge in the long fruity finish with light peppery herbal spiced oak and drying tannins.
