About the wine

Tasting notes

Complex and true to House Style. Brimming with mocha/coffee ground aromatics, heightened by tar/bitumen ‘black’ notes. In a couple of words, voluminous and powerful. Christmas pudding with roasted nuts, then rare lamb and black olives, then sarsaparilla spice. Tannins awashed, oak absorbed, fruit awakened.
