Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, fig, resin, leather and exotic spice lead the nose on this just-released ten-year-old. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, raisin, licorice, ground pepper and truffle while polished tannins provide support. It has already hit the start of its ideal drinking window so enjoy sooner rather than later to capture the remaining fruit.
