Layered aromas of black cherries, dried figs, cocoa, tar and cedarwood, while undertones of dill and rose petals add further interest. The grippy tannins lend a muscular structure and backbone to the wine. The palate is fruit-driven, with plush flavours of red currants, dried apricots, and anise seed. A lovely juicy and succulent wine with lingering notes of ripe red berries on the finish.
