Enormously flavoursome with rich fruit characters of black cherry, plum and ripe berries. American oak adds nuances of vanilla, cigar box, coffee and toast.

Wine Colour
The wine is developing brick red with a deep crimson heart, Its purple hues will continue to fade into soft red brick red as it ages.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has complex aromas of plum fruit, violets and spice with creamy vanillin from maturation in American oak.

Wine Palate
This is a elegant full wine with rich texture. Fruit flavours of purple berries are complimented by subtle spice and faint cedar which bring pleasurable warmth to the palate. The finish is long and persistent.

Cellaring Notes
Delicious upon release and peaking during 2010, 2011 but will reward careful cellaring until 2014, possibly longer.
