At release, the wine is a deep, dark red with purple hues.
There are lifted dark berry, black cherry and raspberry aromas along with subtle spice, black pepper and mocha overtones from the oak maturation.
This is a medium to heavy bodied wine with luscious black cherry, plum and raspberry fruit characters along with some savoury, earthy undertones. The oak maturation brings attractive spice and mocha characters to the palate. Overall, the wine is well balanced with well integrated oak and the finish is persistent and imminently enjoyable.
American oak was employed for its ability to deliver robust characters. After maturing in oak for a period of 10 months, the wine was blended, filtered and bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
