Bruise purple, glass staining on the swirl. Nose of dark choc raspberries with red licorice, sweet nutty brown spice, maraschino cherry, roast tomato, boysenberry and crushed gravel. Full, broad, brooding and svelte. Offering swarthy charm of a well dressed gaucho with chunky, drying tannin and a polished finish.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
