Colour Dark garnet with a deep core.
Nose Floral, perfumed, fresh. Boiled-fruitcake mix nutmeg / cinnamon and mixed spices are laced with glaceed (Cointreau-like) citrus fruits. Subtle praline & liquorice trail on the finish.
Taste Medium to full-bodied with an acid/tannin conveyance propelling flavour to the back-palate. Balanced yet taut, with a continuum of flavours sarsaparilla, beetroot, lemon, blackcurrant. Nutmeg, red liquorice & pomegranate jump to the fore while juniper, bay leaf & menthol linger on the finish. Lot's happening! The finish? Lacy tannins. No oak.
Food matches Hickory smoked beef fillet.
