Tasting Notes

Sweetly perfumed aromas - clove and cinnamon backed up with dark plums, vanilla and a touch of cedar. The palate is richly fruited. Plums and forest berries with savoury leather and cigar notes. Seamless and dense tannins add to the sense of warmth. Opulence nicely balanced with a red vibrancy and spice on the finish.

Cameron Douglas MS writes "Dark ruby core with bright purple and ruby rim. Lovely bouquet lifted aromatics highlighting violets and sweet red berry fruits, plums, soft tobacco, hay, a hint of leather and sweet red bell-pepper. Textured firm(ish) and dry on the palate with flavours that match the nose, firm tannins and plenty of acidity, quite complex and lengthy on the finish. A complete wine with some cellar time ahead. Decant for service with best drinking from 2022 through 2030."
