Deep ruby. Pungent bouquet of high-toned cherry, tobacco and peppery spices, along with deeper suggestions of vanilla and dark chocolate.
Sappy, spicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, chewing tobacco and rose pastille flavours and a jolt of zesty acidity.
Stretches out on a long, gentle tannic finish thats sharpened by a late note of cracked pepper.
