Intense cherry colour with aromas of great finesse dominated by black fruit and well-integrated barrel notes of vanilla and spice.
On tasting it shows excellent structure and balance with soft tannins and flavours of ripe blackberries.
The finish is exceptionally long and harmonious.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points - (Ultimate Beverage Collection, Chairman’s Trophy) Dark and earthy, this wine has bold aromas of roasted earth and black plum flesh. Roasted cranberry and raspberry are focused and supported by considerable earthiness with accents of pine and forest floor. A cocoa powder laden finish leaves the mouth clean. (Jul 2015)
