This is exceptional!
Lashings of black fruit: black cherry and blackberry powerfully aromatic, with herbs, liquorice, pencil lead and cured meats rounding off an encapsulating nose.
The same black fruit is intense and concentrated in the mouth; with savoury elements adding deep and complex tertiary flavours. The palate is abound with a host of subtle nuances.
Medium bodied, with a pronounced aroma and flavour intensity, polished tannins, a linear acidity and an everlasting finish. Simply sublime and the perfect partner in crime to a special treat of Wagyu rib of beef and triple cooked chips.
