The wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat.
Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal characteristics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.
Aged 10 months in French oak, 45% new.
