Deep ruby in colour with an aroma of ripe black cherry, boysenberry and black plum with lifted notes of violets and savoury toasty oak.
A full-bodied rich wine with well integrated tannins, firm acidity and intense concentration. Ripe black cherry and dark plums dominate the palate, supported by a subtle hint of rich coffee and chocolaty silky tannin. French oak lends elegance, structural support and savoury smoky notes.
Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to improve with cellaring of five years and beyond.
Ideally matched with a game or lamb dish served with mushrooms or a rich savoury sauce.
