Deep, dark cherry red colour with touches of brick red. Aromas of spicy oak, as well as mature black and red fruit; plum, cherry and damson. Some balsamic and eucalyptus notes. Good balance between the aromas from the extended maturation and the mature fruit. This wine has intensity and balance, soft, round tannins, and a long finish with hints of toast and liquorice.
The nose fills with aromas of mature black and red fruit. Hints of cinnamon and sage give the wine pleasant spicy and herbal undertones. Lots of depth on this wine with lush, velvety tannins that create a long finish.
It is recommended that this wine be decanted before consumption. Its intensity allows it to pair well with red meats hearty stews, as well as strong, aged cheeses, or even dark chocolate.
