Winemaker's Notes

Deep purple. Rich, spicy fruitcake, cedar and tobacco leaf abundance on the nose. Complex and generous. There's more of the same in the mouth with a generous abundance of black cherry, nutmeg, clove and cedar spice. Svelte and poised, the wine is superbly elegant with the oak and fruit beautifully integrated.

Critical Acclaim

"This red is rich, dense and polished, offering ample details of alder, anise and roasted tobacco matched to a core of dense plum sauce, currant preserves and dark fig fruit. The long finish features a loamy echo."
