Aroma: Black fruits, spice aroma, earthy, and dark tea.
Palate: Plenty of length and depth. Rich but round. Rather full on the texture. Sweet berries and chocolate.
Powerful but delicious full bodied. Such an impressive big boy. Stunning now but it shall be interesting to see how it develops. Grab a piece or pieces of delicious steak to go along and it shall be wonderful.
