Winemaker's Notes

Beautiful bright, deep red colour, with a hint of orange. A delightful nose offers density and volume; great aromatic precision with smooth notes of cedar and tobacco. The ripe, dark fruit is supported by a subtle, delicate woodiness. Plenty of volume and substance in the mouth. Delicious well-blended, silky tannins. The aromatic finish is particularly long and intense.

Critical Acclaim

"Black licorice, mineral and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a pretty blackberry and currant aftertaste. Balanced. Delicate finish."
