Wine Colour
A medium bodied wine with a purple red colour complimented by a youthful hue at release.

Wine Bouquet
The bouquet has hints of chocolate, mocha and fruit aromas of mint and berry. Complex characters of tobacco and cedar are present and will develop further with careful cellaring.

Wine Palate
The palate is generously flavoured with layers of fruit and oak complexity. Mint and berry fruits are evident, as are chocolate and coffee flavours from oak maturation. The palate has a mellow, soft richness giving a velvety warm feel. The finish demonstrates persistent elegant tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellaring Notes
Ready for immediate enjoyment however with careful cellaring will develop further to 2008, possibly longer.
