Deep, dark intense red with violet edges, with mature red berry fruit aroma, smoky notes.
Rich, concentrated fruit on the palate. Everything in balance. Layers of fruit, ripe supportive tannins, lovely texture.

Wine maker notes
Made exclusively from selected grapes hand picked at optimum maturity from our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 12 months in French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels, and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak components. Bottled, unfined and filtered in October 2008.
