Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Dark with a slight purple tinge. The nose opens with raspberry, blueberry and plum stone with a layer of graphite and rose water adding interest and elegance. The palate is darker with cherry and juicy plum opening before dark chocolate, mocha and blackberry emerge. The palate is mouth filling yet focused with an earthy character running throughout and building to a spicy finish that lingers. Powdery mineral tannins provide structure with little oak influence evident. Generous enough to drink on release this wine will age for up to ten years in a cellar and will benefit from decanting.

The palate has greater power than many previous vintages at the same stage of development. The wine will flourish in bottle, revealing ever more as it ages over this decade."
