Gorgeous bouquet! Makes me want to dive into the bottle.
Delicious fruit, ripe tannins and excellent lenth. 2 hour decant needed at least!

Color is dark red with a shade of brown and a light purple rim.

On the nose, very strong aroma of cloves and spices with blueberries, Figs, raisins and white pepper.

Full-bodied and 14.5% alcohol with gorgeous legs.

On the palate, not as fruity as on the nose.
Dry on the attack and not as smooth as I expected. Blackberries, black currants, cloves, earth, licorice, black pepper and slight vanilla.

Long finish with hoarse tannins. Better with food than to be had by itself.
