Spicy, fruity and herbaceous aromas. Flavor is quite juicy, full of luscious strawberry and cherry fruit, spice earth and leather. The acidity gives it a spicy freshness, even after twelve years.

Marmite and pine needles on the nose. Extremely rich, thick and concentrated. A real meaty flavor - roast beef and mint jelly. Dark fruits - prunes and figs on the finish.
