Nose of warm liquorice spice with black pepper, blackberry & pencil shavings.
Full of black fruits with blackberry, cherries along with some black pepper. There’s a delicious note of Pomegrante along with hints of dark chocolate, bay leaf and cedar on the finish. Fine tannins.
Good example of a medium bodied Shiraz.. With each passing day, this opened up to reveal more and more floral / violet characters and after 5 days it was still going strong.
Very good wine.
