With a beautiful fragrance, this has bright cherry fruits and plenty of fragrant, musky spices, some chocolate and sweet earth, gentle leather too. The oak is nutty and mellow. The palate's very smooth and even and has plenty of flesh on offer, elegant, bright acidity, and some pepper through the finish. Very balanced – superb wine.
