Tasting Notes: Deep ruby colour. Deep flavour of eucalyptus, refined coffee and a tar hint, with black fruits on the back. It has an extraordinary tannin/ acidity back- bone, great for cellaring. Notes of cherries, dark plums and dark chocolate. Dense, complex but always very elegant. Very long finish.
