Aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, cracked white pepper and cured meat. There's almost a little cassis in there too. Some time in the glass and an intriguing fennel or coriander seed thing sneaks out and lingers in the background.
Soft, fine, delicate, this is engaging finishing long and screaming out for another sip.
Still humming after four days so time in a dark place won't hurt. Yet, she's ready to roll now.
Find it around the traps for under $20 which makes it terrific buying. And if the punters at the Cellarbrations store (Valentine, NSW - $20) I popped into recently are anything to go by, it looks like they know what they are after coz there was none left!
Very good and one I'd certainly plonk one in my trolley.
