Deep, deep red, magenta rim. Rich, bold dark fruits dominate, with bitter chocolate, creme anglaise, mocha and underlying spice and cracked pepper. Fine juicy fruit through the entry to the mid palate where spicy mocha notes emerge with fine tannins. The wine finishes long with juicy persistence.
"Deeply coloured, and offering an array of ripe black fruits, licorice, bitter chocolate and some sappy complexity; the palate is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and showing fresh acidity, and is ultimately in complete harmony and balance."
Australian Wine Companion
"Bright purple. Pungent redcurrant and cherry on the nose, with hints of dried flowers, herbs and anise adding complexity. Bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors are deep and gently sweet, turning more taut on the back half. Finishes tangy and precise, with good energy and no obvious tannins."
