Full depth crimson red. A densely concentrated nose, showing regionally distinctive ripe black fruits and cocoa/dark chocolate, with clove/allspice highlights and cedar and deep vanilla oak in a supporting baritone role. Full-bodied yet softly structured the wine shows ripe berry fruit flavors that contribute to a richly textured mid-palate. Long in the mouth, with finely grained tannins and well integrated stylish oak characters, with restrained acidity closing out the long finish.
Recommended with traditional Beef Wellington served with a rich
mushroom sauce. The earthiness of the mushrooms provides the perfect complement to the 2008 Centenary Hill.
