Bright ruby red colour. The nose gives up maraschino cherry, raspberry and musk – some confect here, and a little perfumed talc. Onwards through juicy raspberry, cranberry and pomegranate to Pink Lady apple skins, smoky meats and earth. There’s strawberry and logan/boysenberry too, rounded out with some leafy herb and leather.
The palate follows with the red/blackberry spectrum and dense savoury plum, rhubarb and dark chocolate, introducing lighter characters of Seville orange, white pepper and cardamom spice. Black tea minerality and dusty tannins bring up the finish. An all-rounder.
