Winemaker's Notes:

The depth of color is dark. The aromas show intense blackberry fruit, pepper and spice. The palate is a big ripe sweet style of cedar and tobacco. Whilst a powerful style, shows a degree of softness and balance. Key element is the overwhelming fruity nature and the soft but strong oak tannin.
My Notes:

About AusVetia:
