Begins with smells from the forest floor, all decaying leaves, moss and earth. With air there are notes of Indian spices and cherry and further breathing reveals darker liquorice and blackberry things. It is sweet and vinous with a beautiful texture and a lovely savoury bent. It finishes with a light splash of quinine bitterness. Perhaps may not bring the house down in a line-up against other vintages but an ethereal, cerebral drink to cuddle up to over a couple of hours partnered with a pot roasted Guinea fowl.
