Aromatically complex. Fine yet ample tannins provide a mouth-filling texture and plenty of length.
An immensely complex nose of ripe apple, orange zest, toast and roasted hazelnut. The palate offers bright fruit and a lush feel, with an enduring nuttiness that provides a long and involving finish.
On the palate it is rich and has lots of depth, huge flavours of cherry, coffee and chocolate are underpinned by ripe tannins and good acidity. This would be ideal with Sirloin steak and chips.
Virtually black in colour, with a rose-like aroma, very intense on the palate and full of fantastic rich velvety fruit. One of the few wines that can stand up to Christmas puddings.
