2008 Killibinbin The Shadow

Deep red in colour with fruit aromas of blackcurrant and fruit jubes along with black pepper and spice. Nuances of aniseed and mint with a faint hint of spicy oak provide complexity. Intense blackcurrants upfront on the palate provide a roundness but underneath is a very fine tannin structure conveying a persistent spicy finish. Gripping and brooding.
