Very deep, saturated ruby colour with opaque depth in the centre; beautifully crafted with subtle berry tones and spiced dark fruit flavours firmly held by supple tannin structure; seamless integration between plum/cassis fruit and cedary oak tones; poised and elegant with enough power to richly reward cellaring for 5 - 8 years.
