Winemaker's Notes

Deep, crimson red. Plum and cherry are the dominant fruit aromas, with Christmas fruit-cake and chocolate coming to the fore additionally. Hints of savoury notes. Chocolate flavors follow through beautifully onto the end palate. The subtle oakiness contributes magnificently to the structure of the wine. Blackcurrant flavors show a dominance on the aftertaste. This wine offers a wonderful, full-mouth feel and delivers a luscious, velvety finish.
