A potpourri of rich and exotic spices mixed in with a lovely fruit bouquet with aromas of blueberry, crushed raspberry and brambleberry mixed with notes of vanilla, earth and black olive. The palate is dry with fresh acidity balancing the rich fruit and body of the wine while the rounded tannins lend structure. Flavours of red currant, blueberry and crushed raspberry fill the mouth with hints of Dutch black liquorice, tobacco and allspice adding I complexity to the long length. Further ageing will allow the acidity to soften and the spices to mesh further. An excellent complement to a tomato based meat dish such as Osso Bucco or try with braised lamb shanks drizzled with a black olive wine sauce.
