Smokey bacon, cocoa, freshly ground roasted coffee beans bay leaf and blackberry aromas combine to create a prolific statement. This is a powerful, complex beauty. The palate is rich, with solid tannin structure and an insane juiciness which persists through to a lengthy and nourishing finish. A good-looking, yet hard-hitting gangster in paradise.
