This dense dessert wine opens with subtle aromas of black fruit, prune, leather ?and spice. The palate delivers concentrated notes of blackberry, dried cherry, cinnamon and chocolate alongside firm, drying tannins that need a few more years to soften. Sip it on its own as a mediation wine or pair with tarts made with dried fruit. Drink 2016–2028.
