"This has a majestic, commanding and rich nose. Aromas of spiced blood orange, grilled nuts and honey all make for a complex and engaging proposition; there's a toffee and brulée-like layer too, with baked apples and spice. The palate's bold, powerful and makes a grand statement of black grape depth. Flavorsome blueberry, cherry and peach pastry notes run long amid smooth-honed phenolics."
