A beautifully deep brooding red with a wild and savoury, almost leathery nose, the fruits perfumed with juniper and cistus; its olfactory complexity broadens to encompass suggestions of coffee, liquorice, black cherry jam, mint and orange peel with flecks of red fruits and savoury spices. On the palate the wine is very rich, fat, dry but supple with excellent intensity. Full-flavoured with cassis, chocolate, peppery, black raspberry, minty, black cherry, meaty vanilla flavours with a dried fig and orange peel finish. But – despite such powerful attributes - the key to this wine is its mid-palate elegance and balance. Delicious and packed with style it has the grace and balance to age for a decade and beyond.
