"Color: A black core with a barely visible purple rim.
Nose: Classic Kalimna, with trademark red fruits and a familial old-worldliness. Juniper and blackberry fruits, and raspberry stick and red liquorice flavourings. A carbon black 'sumpiness'/quince paste amalgam laced with a ferric/formic piquant lift. Possibly oak-induced, barrel-fermented eugenol/pink peppercorn/fresh green-tobacco aromatics.
Palate: Viscous, Velvety, Voluminous. (Editors note: the BOLD V is deliberate) A 'tannin tsunami'… riding a ripe and even wave across the palate. Oak totally absorbed, allowing blueberry fruits and a black-pudding textural imprint to stake ownership during this phase. An energetic tension impatiently awaiting to be… unleashed, tamed?! Commands attention, requests little, appreciates your patience." —winemaker
