Winemaker's Notes:

A big wine with intense ripe berry aromas and rich in the mouth with a texture that is enhanced by creamy fruit and chalky tannins. Cellared properly, it will develop over the next 5 - 10 years and should last 15- 20 years. Best with hearty foods such as steak, rack of lamb and grilled portobello mushrooms.
My Notes:
