Smells

a perfumed core of blackcurrants with overtones of forest floor, leather, cigarbox and brown spice.

Tastes

a wine with powerful tannins but with an attractive blackcurrant fruited core of fruit. It is both generous and well structured, thanks to the 20-year-old vines. A wine showing some delicious secondary development with forest floor, leather and spice notes, all in context of several years bottle maturation. But still very alive and has many years ahead.
