A deep core of black fruit, grilled herbs and liquorice combines with savoury elements of tar, soy, new leather, and black olives. Some dusty, sweet eucalyptus notes are drowned out by the wine’s sheer concentration. Pronounced, fine, dry tannins justify aerating the wine, and further bottle ageing of 3-8 years. A serious, full-bodied expression of cultivar.
Will complement a beef fillet served with red wine and bone-marrow reduction.
