An inviting youthful nose of blackcurrants, bilberry and cassis, wrapped up with hints of smoky oak. The palate is succulent, deliciously juicy, and very true to the nose with flavours of sweet plum, black and redcurrants. Backed by fine-grained tannins, this is very pure and fruit forward, nicely balanced with a lingering spicy finish.
