Plenty of flavour here. Cherry and chocolate, dried flower and herb perfume, toasted hazelnut. It’s fleshy and thick with tannin, some orange peel and dried herb twang, a little warmth from alcohol, soft acidity, with a slightly malty finish of good length, albeit a bit soft and muddy. Good wine though.
