Deep ruby and plum appearance with rich scents of fresh citrus, dark berries, herbs and mulling spices followed by a soft hint of eucalyptus. Excellent concentration of ripe forest berries with a lively lift lead to darker notes of anise and black tea tannins. Very intriguing in its depth of expression, it could benefit from decanting and should develop well through 2021.
