Deeply fruited with damson plums, blackberry, kid skin glove leather and an amalgam of spices headed by cloves and tobacco. Violet petals and graphite give a delicate, fine edge. Perfectly balanced with yet ripe layers of smoky black/purple fruit with fine, chalky tannins, a rapier slice of acidity  and soft chocolatey finish. Ageing gloriously.

RRP: $50
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.75/20
