The nose has layered aromatics of red fruit, cassis, candied plum, and a slight floral and anise component. The palate has evident residual sugar and a caressing viscous mouth-feel. Flavors of red and black fruit compote, plum, fig and baking chocolate are overt. The ripe tannins are evident but not off-putting. This wine is a dessert in itself or with rich chocolate desserts (especially with berry sauces), pungent cheeses (Stilton), and winds over 74mph.
