Colour Ruby-Red
Nose Pure-fruited cassis and raspberry aromatics with a tempting hint of coconut, vanilla and sweet spice.
Palate A polished palate centered around a cranberry, black currant and figgy core, opening up to flavours of white chocolate and salted licorice. Crunchy tannins melt into a soft, almost creamy finish, laden with finesse.
Food Pairing Medium rare, char-grilled Angus beef.
Cellaring 1-3 Years

Wine Spectator
Ripe and energetic, with a juicy core of black currant, fig and blackberry fruit, carried by brambly tannins through the finish. Shows ample grip, but the fresh acidity is well-embedded. Should unwind nicely with brief cellaring.
