Developing cedar, cigar box & leathery overtones. Strong mint fruit with liquorice,coffee and ripe berry characters.

Mint, spice and stewed fruit of black currant and cherry. An elegantly structured wine with complexities of mushroom and earthiness. The palate has great persistence of flavour supported by supple French Oak tannins.
