A powerfully intense wine from an historic vineyard site, this has a surprisingly welcoming theme of tangy acidity behind the ripeness of the black and red fruit, the typical blackberry giving way to brighter notes of pomegranate and red cherry. The finish delivers a fistful of black pepper and back note of leather.
