CHARACTER – All about the fruit and oak from the margaux, a totally different dimension to the 9.1 based on one year in the red wine casks. As it opens out there is more and more fruit, cherry, plum, strawberry. This is going to be legendary in years to come.
AROMA – Smoked Jam, blackcurrant, cherry, almond. The smoke is earthy, coffee grounds, oak and vanilla all mixed and always there is fruity strawberry/blackcurranty jam.
TASTE – Dark and complex on the palate, dark cherry, earthy smoke, bitter coffee. Ripe plums and pipe tobacco.
FINISH – Spice comes through, earthy, peppery, smoke as ever comes through strong on the palate.
COLOUR – Cinnamon .
