Medium red with purple hues. On the nose, vibrant cherry fruit characters are underpinned by savory, gamey notes and spice. Attractive French oak is evident, but does not dominate. Medium-bodied in style, the wine has great texture, elegance and length. Fine chalky tannins provide structure to the palate and are complemented by hints of whole bunch stalk and fine grained French oak. Ripe fruit characters of cherry and raspberry are evident with gamey and savory overtones.
"Mid-garnet, purple rim; a vibrant and fresh bouquet filled with black cherry, spice and a mere suggestion of spicy stem; the palate is silky and approachable, with seductive levels of sweet fruit, plenty of fine grained tannin as backbone and a long, toasty finish.
