The wine is opaque in the center with a translucent licorice rim. It offers blackberries, crème de cassis with graphite and tobacco leaf on the nose promising a mouthful of power as you sip it. The palate has immense body with an opulent texture and a wealth of fruit that will leave you clambering to pin point each one. Try roasted meats with fynbos, fresh violets, coffee and a mineral element. It offers intensity and purity and a balanced symmetry that is pure poetry.
