Deep ruby red with vivid purple hues, on the nose this wine has incredible lift and aromatic intensity abounding in concentrated cassis, blueberry and plum fruit flavours; further nuanced by overtones of bitter coco and ripe bay leaf. The palate provides layers of complex and generous varietal flavours including blackberry, plum and cassis. The intense fruit flavours are well supported by delicately interwoven French oak characters and a savoury complexity. The long flavoursome finish is framed by well rounded tannin ensuring the wine will reward long-term cellaring.
