As you’d expect: opaque purple in the glass. There’s a treacle/molasses note alongside woody cherry, bluestone rocks, blackcurrant and clove spiced plums. Soft leather, varnish with white SAXA pepper. Smooth, easy yet bright on the palate: The soft oak more crowd friendly than a David Guetta remix.
With hands reaching for the lasers: there’s plush Barossa plum jam and maraschino cherry before savoury tar and just the right amount of tannin to rumble over your teeth. A good value, drink up proposition.
