Stylishly crimson with youthful purple hues. On the nose an aromatic explosion of berry compote, a slight smokiness with underlying hints of cinnamon and cedar. The palate is confronted with an infusion of black cherries, bitter chocolate mousse and subtle cinnamon notes. Mouth-filling, with a soft tannin structure and a well-balanced acidity ensures mid-palate weight and a long, lingering spicy finish.
Enjoy now, and carry on drinking it for the next 4 years.
Serve slightly chilled with a Stilton and honey walnut salad, or aromatic full flavoured Indian beef. Alternatively drink it on its own in front of a crackling fire.
