Deep red with black hues.
The wine has a complex bouquet of creamy vanilla, ripe berries, cigar box and spices.
The wine has generous amounts of blackberry, liqueur cherries and chocolate flavours. The fruit characters are accompanied by cedar, almond and mocha oak characters. The wine has a round mid palate and has a soft, creamy mocha and berry fruit finish.
Approachable now but will cellar well to 2012, possibly later.
