Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a dark red with an intense purple hue.

Wine Bouquet
At release, distinct aromas of black cherries, ripe strawberries abound with secondary spice, sweet mocha and cigar box characters evident

Wine Palate
At release, this wine is medium to full-bodied with lush red berry, plum and red cherry fruit characters. The fruit flavours are balanced by undertones of creamy mocha, spice and subtle savoury characters. The palate has a soft, velvety texture with grainy tannins through the mid-palate and a long, persistence to the finish.

Cellaring Notes
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2017.
