At release the wine is a deep red colour with a purple hue to the edge.
There are subtle floral notes of violet with rich cassis and hints of dark chocolate covered cherries. The oak maturation provides dusty cigar box and rich leather overtones.
This is a full bodied wine with complex layers of flavour. At its core is rich blackcurrant, and dark cherry, beautifully melding with dark chocolate, hints of mint and savoury oak with supple underlying tannins. Overall a very complete, complex and most enjoyable wine.
