A gentle swish in the glass and the deep cherry coloured liquid is clawing at the sides, it has a texture and viscosity which suggests that there is great intensity to follow. Aromas of sweet, dark forest fruit, bitter chocolate and brambly spice jostle for your attention, there's so much going on but the intensity and youthful nature of the wine makes separating the elements all the more challenging. There is a notable relaxation following a little time in the decanter as it spreads its wings and notes savoury caramel and sweet oak emerge.

The palate is in sync with the aromatic extravagance which preceded it; sweet blackcurrant dominates initially with warming autumnal fruit hints of star anise, liquorice a hint of vanilla and waring cedar from time on oak barrel. The ripe sweet dark fruit envelopes the tannins which are have a velvety texture to them with sweet mulberry and spice hanging on the palate as the gentle grip subsides.

It's a deeply satisfying glass of red and its gently warming, but not overly grippy, style seems perfectly timed as the nights start to draw in and a coolness graces the air.
