The wine has an initial brightness and clarity of fruit , before the darker, brooding notes come out on the nose. Black cherry and dark plum come forward on the palate, with a softness and suppleness of ripe tannins giving a rounded structure and lasting aftertaste. Dark berry flavours are balanced with subtle spice, chocolate, earth and savoury characteristics that enhance and lengthen the palate. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.
