A heavy rush of black coffee is the key aroma, and with that comes notes of rustic barrel char and black fruit. It delivers a solid structure and a firm foundation, along with sticky tannins and oak-based resin. It tastes dark, with baked plum, tobacco and spice. This is creamy, charred and oaky from start to finish.
