Tasting note:
Impressive color for the vintage, it is an intense deep, dark, opaque black ruby with a youthful purple hue. It had a sophisticated and complex nose revealing attractive floral nuances. Integrated with hints of liquorice, violet, vanilla, oak and toast against a background of concentrated berry aromas. Medium to full-bodied, rich with a solid core of fresh fruit backed by firm ripe tannins. Well crafted with vanilla and almost sweet currant fruit smoothing out the fine tannins and echoing on a long finish. JKW04/15
