Tasting Notes

Young and complex. A dark regal ruby colour. Layers of sweet blackcurrant, mulberry, cherry and chocolate fruit with a lovely spicy oak. The texture is smooth and silky with a long, full finish. Rich in flavour, showing a little gaminess on the finish. Smooth, full bodied red wine packed with ripe fruit and good clean oak to give it a long finish.
