A full bodied wine with dark cocoa, black pepper, plum, ground coffee, blackberry and ripe cherry characters. The sweet dark fruits are balanced by gentle powdery tannins. Medium term bottle age is now revealing greater complexity and smoothness. Fabulous to enjoy now and will also cellar until 2028 or so.
