Medium to deep brick red. Aged characters of tobacco, cigar box, leather and earth are apparent on the bouquet. On the palate - Fine structured with soft tannin and acid backbone with intense fruit characters and hints of mint. The flavours persist into the long dry finish.
The wine has lots of warm black fruit and plum aromas, with cinnamon, spices, pepper and a hint of vanilla. The palate is concentrated with damsons, red fruit, spice and stony minerality with a very elegant and warm finish. The mouth is initially very silky but gives way to some mouth watering acidity and firm tannins.
