Winemaker: Etienne le Riche. Aromas of black currant leaf, bramble, licorice, crème de cassis, black pepper, cigar box and toasted cedar abound on the nose of this robust wine. The palate is full and firmly textured, with good grip and composure to the black fruit core. Hints of leather and licorice root linger through the long, spicy finish. Drink after 2020.
