This wine is dark ruby red in colour, displaying bright, lifted blueberry and raspberry fruits. Hints of black pepper and liquorice with nuances of spicy vanillin oak round off the bouquet. The palate is medium to full-bodied with intense fruit flavours. A firm tannin structure with a soft acid balance frame a rich mid palate that leads to a long and sustained finish. While this wine will drink well now, it will benefit from extended cellaring over the next 10 – 15 years.
