Baked plum and black berry aromas mesh with a meaty character on the nose, while black pepper and crushed carnation petals add depth to the black fruit-dominant palate. It takes a while for the wine to fully open up, but once it comes out of its shell the silky texture and rich fruit character shines magnificently.
