Winemake Notes: A deep ruby colour, almost as black as the grapes it comes from such that first impressions are of blackberry, blackcurrant and black cherry. On the palate, this wonderful basket of ripe fruit combines with a delicate oaky note for added complexity. The wine is round, full and fresh in the mouth, supported by a lovely tannic structure that makes for enchanting spicy notes in the finale.
