2007 Orphan Bank Imperial
COLOUR: Very deep crimson, purple
NOSE: Lifted perfume of ripe Satsuma plums, liquorice, violets and pepper tease the nostrils with well integrated French oak characters of cedar and biscuit that make you want to jump into the glass
PALATE: Full bodied yet velvety texture tantalizes the taste buds with plum and raspberries dominating the flavours and hints of sweet spice, black olive and pepper adding to the complexity. The finish is fruitful and long eventually ending in a spicy, peppery fashion with the austerity of youth.
