Rich, opulent and dense yet at the same time beaming with a youthful freshness, the palate is awash with bright dark plum, liquorice, freshly crushed blackberry and blueberry fruits. Spicy vanillin cedar, earthy fennel and pepper also chime in. Finishes slightly inky with a burst of vibrant acidity.
