This wine is deep rich red, almost black in colour. It has a perfumed labyrinth of ripe berry fruits, violets, black pepper and menthol, Asian spices, cigar box, oak and new leather. This wine has a complex palate showing a distinct elegance and vibrancy of fruit with an array of black currant, mulberries, dark cherry and quince. The fruit acid is natural and balanced with the tannins being fine and layered. Underlying oak shows restraint combined with notes of cedar, dark chocolate, spice and tar.
