Deep dark ruby with purple Highlights. Intense bouquet with blackberry and dark fruit, sandalwood, liquorice, and a touch of cassis and orange zest. Complex and elegant on the palate with multifaceted, juicy tannin and delicate blackberry on the finish. The aftertaste lingers long and appetizing. Demonstrates superb potential for further development and ageing.
