Fine spice and dark chocolate infused liquorice surprise on the nose. Tasting this aromatic and delicately concentrated wine reveals blackcurrant, dried plumbs and fresh rose petals. A hint of black pepper with a dash of rocket salad leafs finishes the taste sensation. This wine is well structured and held up by firm but elegant tannins that has a soft and sweet finish as it tip toes down you throat.
The 2009 vintage may be paired with robust meats and aroma filled red meat dishes.
If stored in optimal conditions this wine should last 10 - 15 years.
