Initially developing a more adult colour, browning ruby with a pale meniscus. The fresh fruity aromas and flavours transforming into more complex, earthy, smokey, gamey and old leather smells followed by soft round medium bodied earthy, spicy nutmeg and coffee mocha flavours before the consistent long fine refreshing acid and gentle tannin finish.
