Aerated with a Vinturi. Nose of blackberry, black cherry, violet, cedar, spice and black tea. Silky smooth blackberry, black cherry, currant, espresso, spice and smooth tannins. Leads to a medium to long, dry finish. Full bodied.
Big ripe fruit and oak driven wine but for me it's still balanced. Big dark fruit on the entry with slightly green briar patch, coco dust and leather. After a couple of day in the bottle it had become a bit more oak dominate so enjoyed a bit more with a short decant.
