Wine Colour
Deep purple with a crimson hue.

Wine Bouquet
The aroma is abundant with juicy plums, black currants and licorice with background notes of chocolate, vanilla and cedar.

Wine Palate
The palate has intense flavours of berry fruits, spice, licorice, dark chocolate and vanilla. Good oak integration, balanced acid and soft tannins create a well structured wine with a soft, velvety finish that is sure to please.

Cellaring Notes
The wine can be enjoyed now but will benefit from careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2012.
