This is a full bodied wine and the dark ruby colour gives an insight to the depth and richness of the wine. The aroma profile is of blackcurrants, black cherries, plums, chocolate, spices and white pepper. The clever use of French and American oak compliment the fruit aroma of this wine by providing some smoky overtones and cedar nuances. The palate is full of lovely ripe fruit and is well complimented by the soft rounded tannins, leading to a long and elegant finish. This wine is an ideal gift for special occasions and has great potential to develop for at least 10 years.
