Tasting Notes -+
Nose A subtle note of toasty-oak is yet to integrate into the potent morello cherry strewn bouquet.
Palate Further complexity of graphite, salami and bacon notes balance an intense floral lift, whilst whiffs of mint and chocolate finally drift slowly through to a supple, layered palate. A lacy, sweet-fruited cassis-cocktail stuns the palate all wrapped up with rich but etched tannins on the finish.
Cellaring 5-10 Years
Notes Drink now and over the next 8 years. Broader than the emphatic 2009, 2010 shows more of the Bordeaux varietal mix over its savoury Shiraz component.
