Color: Deep garnet red.
Aromas: Lifted dark berry fruits, black cherry with hints of savory spice and chocolate.
Palate: The palate shows wonderful density with warm, dark plum and berry fruit. There is a perceived sweetness from the ripe fruit, while the tannins are fine and seamless.
Serving suggestions: The wine's concentration and underlying elegance makes it an ideal match to a wide range of foods. It is perfectly matched to porcini or field mushroom risotto or pasta. The savory richness also lends itself to rare venison, grilled ostrich, slow-cooked rabbit, hare or wild fowl stews with winter vegetables.
Cellaring: A complex, finely structured wine which will age gracefully for at least six years.
