Wine Colour
Deep crimson red with a youthful purple hue at release.

Wine Bouquet
Luscious lifted varietal aromas of ripe plum, licorice and violets. Subtle characters of dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar add complexity to the aroma.

Wine Palate
The palate has an elegant palate while being rich and generous in fruit. Ripe plum and licorice primary fruit characters are evident throughout the palate. Cinnamon, nutmeg, dark chocolate and vanilla characters work well with the primary fruit, to create a complex flavour profile. The wine has a silky, seamless texture and long persistence.

Cellaring Notes
Approachable but will reward careful cellaring to 2010, possibly longer.
