Dark black olive in colour with blood red and cerise hues.
Powerful, ripe, smoky and alluring. The upfront nose displays aromas of lifted black and red stewed fruits. This is supported by wafts of roasted cashew nuts and chestnuts with hints of black pepper and cardamom.
Wonderfully ripe, juicy, savoury yet soft. The upfront fruit flavours are of crushed wild berries of both blackberry and raspberry. The mid palate is complex with layers of spice including star anise, clove and nutmeg. This is supported by textures of crushed nuts. The back palate is elegant with firm, yet soft tannins.
