Winemaker's Notes

Color: Deep vibrant red.

Aroma: Ripe fruit aromas. White pepper and pencil shavings, with hints of cedar and truffles.

Palate: Rich medium bodied style, with the fruit complexity following through from the nose. Well integrated oak, with hazelnuts and cinnamon balancing well with the riper fruits. Good full finish.

Cellaring: Drinks well now, but will improve with 3 to 5 years in the bottle.
