(cask/amphore) dark red, with purple in it. Has a live black cherry fruit aroma, notes of black olives, some reduction. The palate gives keen black fruits, Morello cherry, with cut in the tannins, shows nerve on the second half, a wee violet indicating its granite origins. It comes with inner depth, strength, rocks well. There are blood and iron notes, it has good energy, and surges well towards the finish. From mid-late 2020. 2028-30 Feb 2019
