Wine Colour
Deep red with a youthful, purple rim.

Wine Bouquet
Varietal Cabernet overtones are evident with mint, faint licorice, and subtle hallmarks of French oak in spice, cedar and a tobacco like edge. Some herbal elements are also apparent with lashings of ripe berry fruit.

Wine Palate
The palate presents a firm, structured wine of medium body with ample, fleshy fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon leads, giving generous ripe blackcurrant fruit characters and firm tannins which lay down the immediate structure of the wine. The Merlot then follows, with softer, fleshy plum and black cherry flavours, filling out the mid-palate. The wine then delivers a satisfyingly focused and spicy finish.

Cellaring Notes
Ready for immediate enjoyment however with careful cellaring will develop further to 2010, possibly longer.
