Alluring aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, cooking spice, eucalyptus and a whiff of game emerge on this full-bodied, earthy wine. The palate demonstrates structure and elegance, delivering mature black cherry marinated in spirits, licorice, pipe tobacco, clove and balsamic notes alongside firm, velvety tannins. While this is already almost accessible it will offer years of drinking pleasure.
