Tasting Notes

Nose - Medium intense aroma of dark cherries, dried oregano and slight licorice. Almost cured meat with its fruit. 

Palate - Rich but soft tannins, cherries carry on from the nose with more intense red plums and dark fruits showing its age gracefully. 

Finish - Medium long finish with this wonderfully bitterness which pairs gloriously with the fruit that lingers. 

Needs to stretch its legs before drinking so allow time to open and decant if possible.
