Some colour to this and the nose follows it. Deep, dark and resinous. Violin cases, treacle toffee, Parkin cake, daffodils and a meaty edge, seared steak. BBQ sauce, ploughed earth. A hint of soy sauce, mirin and mushroom stroganoff.
Heavy oak influence, that seared steak note, plum and bacon jam. Tomato stalks. Bitter lettuce, Lollo Rosso. Fragrant Turkish coffee.
