The nose is a display of fragrant violets, black currants and blueberry confectionery complemented by savoury notes of black olive tapenade, tobacco leaf and dusty dark chocolate. The palate is opulent yet refined combining intense dark fruits and sweet spice with firm gravelly tannins providing impressive length.
