Inky black core showing excellent colour saturation with a deep dark red black hue. Aromas of blackcurrant tinged with a mixture of liquorice and bay leaf flow from the glass. Cedary tobacco and spice notes ensue. Medium to full bodied, rich flavours of blackcurrant and liquorice are overlaid by some fairly prominent toasty cedar and spice. Bright acidity and firmish tannins provide structure. Slightly charred aftertaste.
