Colour At release, the wine is a dark red with an intense purple hue.
Nose The wine has distinct aromas of black cherries and ripe strawberries abound with secondary spice, sweet mocha and cigar box characters evident.
Palate At release, this wine is medium to full-bodied with lush red berry, plum and cherry fruit characters. The fruit flavours are balanced by undertones of creamy mocha, spice & subtle savoury characters. The palate has a soft, velvety texture with grainy tannins through the mid-palate and a long, persistence to finish.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in a mixture of French & American oak barrels for a period of 6 months before being blended & bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
