Deep purple back colour surrounded by a narrow purple rim.
An opulent and seductive nose, very much in the Croft style.
A sumptuous, dense coulis of blackcurrant predominates at first but then merges gradually with subtle herbal and balsamic notes, hints of rock rose and aromas of mocha and liquorice. On the palate the wine is round and richly textured with beautifully integrated, velvety tannins.
The dark berry fruit flavours carry through into the long finish.
A textbook Croft LBV at its peak of ripeness and drinkability.
