This wine is dark garnet red in color with high clarity. The nose is very fragrant with intense cassis and cedar dominating the aromas. There is some underlying nuances of fennel and damson plums. A generous, medium bodied palate with lovely succulent tannins which carry the flavors of of blackcurrant, sandalwood, licorice and morello cherries.
As with previous releases of The Cover Drive, the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.
