Description/ Tasting NotesStartling bouquet of dark berry fruit, bay leaf, hints of jasmine tea and autumn leaves. Delivers a multi-faceted aromatics, a mercurial bouquet, brown spices emerging with continued aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with great structure and fine grip. Lovely lift on the finish that leaves you with a piquant kiss on the cheek. Elegance and vigour with firm tannins.
