Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a dark red colour with a faint brick red hue to the edge. The depth and intensity of the colour means it should hold for many years to come.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has lifted and distinctly varietal aromas of cassis, dark cherries, choc-mint and sweet spice along with fresh, vibrant blackcurrant fruit and subtle cigar and tobacco from the oak.

Wine Palate
The palate delivers what the aroma promises with generous, concentrated blackcurrant fruit up front, mint freshness through the mid palate and finishing with long, fine-grained tannins. These characters are matched with lashings of chocolate, cedar and cinnamon from the French oak maturation. It is a generous wine which is beautifully ripened yet retains poise and the elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellaring Notes
The wine is evolving well at release yet should cellar well to 2019 possibly longer.
