    Tasting Notes

    Vibrant rose/crimson with a core of ruby. An imposing wine. The nose is earthy and dense with hints of ripe strawberry, iodine, bouquet garni and undergrowth. The palate shows power and poise with superb acid balance. Great length allows complex flavours to reveal themselves; Savoury plum and cherry, porcini mushroom, beef broth, and mineral characters. The commanding structure and supporting oak indicates the wine will only improve with age.
