Aromatics deliver black pepper, plum, black currant and graphite. On the palate, notes of crushed rock, lush blackberry, clove, baking spices, lavender and dark chocolate evolve with every sip. There is a brightness to the fruit profile, with notes of cinnamon, raspberry, juicy blackberry and licorice. The finish is long lasting, with resolved and approachable tannins, pleasant minerality.
