Deep core, bright purple rim. Very appealing nose with mix of ripe, black berry fruits, chocolate and hint of fine oak. Rich and full flavoured mouth with medium body. Emerging flavours of blackcurrant, hint of black olive and slight touch of dark chocolate. Beautifully balanced and fine tannins. Sweet impression of ripe fruit in long, well formed, aftertaste. Needs a year or two to begin to show it’s full potential.
