About the wine

Tasting notes

Aromas of dark fruits and chocolate, splashed by spices – cinnamon, vanillin pod, cola. Then, a transient umami dabble – via cues of Worcestershire sauce and smoked bacon. In the mouth it's a wave of fruits and spice propelled by tomato and tahini paste flavours. Juicy, succulent tannins engulf, alongside oak – adding volume, density. Mouth-coating in every sense. Long and lingering.
