The nose is a combination of plums and blackberries with a hint of smoked bacon character in the background from maturation in older French oak.
The front palate is rich and full flavoured, showing mixed berry flavours and highlighting the seductive flavours of stewed plums.
The Middle palate provides more opulent black cherry / sweet spicy plum flavours.
The back palate finishes long and silky and with gentle fruit tannins. Should improve in the bottle for the next three to four years.
