TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby red in colour. Seductive aromas of wild blackberries and cherries with hints of red roses with underlying earthy spice and toasty notes. A welcoming entrance of voluptuous wildberries and fleshy plums,underlying forest floors, integrated spices, open fires with hints of toasted hot crossed buns coming together with a savourymineral core that leads to a long lingerig finish.
