Colour: Vibrant, dense plum red, red edges.
Nose: A black Kalamata olive tapenade as a first impression, beneath an overlay of camphor and tobacco. How to say this politely? Boot polish, bitumen, cola, granite ... darkened style/varietal base notes. Yet blackberry conserve and sour cherry fill the (fruity) treble register. Scents of cut straw/steel cut oats fill any aromatic chord gaps.
Palate: Full-bodied. Substantial. Framboise des bois (raspberry) with pips/vinegar - coulis or apothecary?
Meat? Closest association noted - raw/rare venison. Not to deny the welcomed presence of chocolate torte and mocha flavours. A "cloaked" continuum of tannins that linger and reverberate with the discipline of a vinous pendulum. Finishes intact with a flourish of dusty graphite (input of oak?) and balanced acidity.
