This wine is a brilliant deep dark red in colour, with a bright scarlet hue. The bouquet displays ripe, dark fruit characters of mulberry, blackberry and poached plum coupled with black olive and spice. Underlying chocolate box and cedar notes are derived from French oak maturation. The generous, fruit forward palate is rich with dark fruits, hints of mocha and cassis, and a firm, fine tannin structure with balanced acidity providing lovely texture and length. While drinking well now, the wine will comfortably cellar over the next 10 years.
