The colour is deep purple with some terracotta hues. On the nose it is mature, concentrated, dense, and with immense complexity. Aromas are focused on ripe red fruits (morello cherries, blackberries and cherries) along with spicy characteristics such as clove, cinnamon and black pepper. Hints of herbal aromas and cedar are revealed. On the mouth it is full-bodied, smooth and silky, with well-structured tannins and vivid acidity: so mature and yet so young. Flavours are consistent with the aromas and become even more dominant. The aftertaste is elegant, powerful, exquisitely complex, and seems to go on forever.
