A deep black appearance with a wonderful crimson deep cherry red hue. The bouquet shows intense aromas of ripe, blackberry fruits, liquorice appear first followed by prune-like notes with deep spicy plum pudding characters. As it opens, deeper blackberry mulberry fruits with anise evolve combined with a lifted (and slightly 'taily') brandy spirit which is most appealing. The palate showcases primary fruit flavours, combined with the integrated, unwooded brandy spirit ensure the palate is full-flavoured balanced with very fine, almost tea-like tannins and a dry finish.
