Intense ruby red, violet hues.
Subtle notes of chocolate, cigar box, and black pepper are layered with concentrated plum, black cherry and fruit cake.
Soft and full-bodied, the wine shows rich dark fruit and berry flavors that contribute to a juicy mid-palate. Black pepper, dried herb and spice
flavours evolve with time in the glass. The luscious fruit textures are supported by fine tannins and well integrated charry mocha oak characters. A well structured, balanced and truly complex wine with a persistent sweet berry finish.
"Has retained good colour, still with crimson notes; is a refined, elegant wine with all its components in balance; impossible to criticise technically, but it doesn't have a distinct personality."
Australian Wine Companion
"Dark and dense, with a smoky, woody edge to the black cherry, licorice and bay leaf flavors, persisting against polished tannins on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,500 cases imported."
