The 2008 release is a deep, vibrant ruby in color. Intensely fragrant, with a lifted nose of concentrated plums, cassis and spicy oak characters. The palate displays rich plummy, blackcurrant jam notes with a hint of cardamom spice.
The 2008 has firmer tannins than the 07 vintage, and is a rich, textural wine. The fine acidity and firm tannins will see the wine age gracefully for up to 5 years.
