The colour is a deep dark purple. On the nose, the wine displays an initial rush of green tobacco, parsley & bouquet garni with a waft of red licorice. Fresh fruits abound - mulberry, the most obvious. Upon a swirl, cedar, spice and a flirt of toasted marshmallow. With air, the generosity and sweetness of fruit is shyly revealed. On the palate, notes of rhubarb and berried fruits to the fore and at the other end - a kick off the back-palate of crushed black pepper. Not forgetting the mid-palate - wonderfully integrated oak & spice and a 360-degree propulsion of graphite-like tannins. Cola and black olive flavours descend with an exuberant swirl - reflective of this wine's youth. Pair with lamb seasoned with Moroccan herbs and spices.
