The depth of the dark plum, almost purple colour in this wine is striking. Aromas of wet earth, quince, smoke and mocha provide an inviting introduction to what lies ahead. On the palate, well-defined tannins and firm acidity support flavours of black cherry, cinnamon and earth, suggesting a long life ahead. The wine finishes with a hint of vanilla pod and dark chocolate.
