Dense crimson red. Ripe, concentrated and varietal. To the fore - dark fruits laced with bay-leaf, camphor, cinnamon and kalamata olive (juice). Less obtrusively - subtle leather & polish, nutmeal and a modicum of oak. Redolent of a dark blackcurrant/prune jus over a sticky date or Christmas pudding, yet retaining a
somewhat savoury juiciness. A beguiling texture
- south-east chalk, sea-mineral (wet-stone)
gravely tannins and integrated oak -conspiring to
create a dense, muscular weave. No mint , no
leafiness - simply full-throttle, amply-flavoured
dark Cabernet, replete with a cassis thumb-print.
