Color: Deep, dark red, with an impenetrable core.
Nose: Brooding, yet compliantly permitting noticeable oak to propel dark fruits from the glass, unveiling wafts of stewed Christmas pudding (a mix of dates / sultana / fig) beneath. High notes of anise,
licorice and an element of scented talc tussle with
more grounded and complex savory & cold meat
aromatics. Gasping for air !
: Youthful, bright dark fruits hover over a base of stewed rhubarb & quince paste. Integrated oak serves to tighten the palate rather than impart any flavor, although upon sitting, coffee-ground and
barrel ferment nuances arise & linger...
