"Tasting note: Magnificent super saturated colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core with a very deep black dark red hue. Showing fabulous intensity, liquorice, dark chocolate and black plum aromas leap out of the glass in flamboyant fashion with overtones of vanillin oak and mocha. Decadently rich and gloriously concentrated flavours of dark chocolate and succulent ripe blackberry and liquorice explode on the palate followed by mocha, vanillin oak and spice. Dense and opulently textured with a polished silky smooth tannin structure. Exceptional power with very long dark chocolate, liquorice, ripe blackberry and mocha vanillin oak aftertaste. An utterly unfettered, grass roots expression of what HJ's vines are capable of. Decant for early drinking or enjoy over the next 5-8 years.
