A beautiful garnet colour, showing some moderate aging. Plum, pomegranate, earth and tobacco on the nose, with a touch of savoury. The palate is elegant, refined and full-bodied, with integrated tannins and acidity. On the palate, you will find a sweet core of plum, blackberry, raspberry and baking spice, as well as a discernible and intriguing umami character. This should be decanted for a few hours before serving alongside a roast beef dinner or hearty lamb stew.
