Rich and inviting aromas of black cherry, cocoa powder, plum and vanilla. The ample palate is weighty, but balanced, with black berry, anise, plum and baking spices. The tannins have mellowed and softened, but there is still loads of structure. The acids show through the layers of rich fruit and long, kirsh-inflected finish. Serve at cellar temperature with roast lamb, braised beef or decant and enjoy on a cool evening.
