Dark almost black. Dense aromas of cassis, tobacco and dark fruit. Taste is a lovely balance of fruit, cassis, coffee and earth with ripe tannins, i guess this is what is labelled a brooding wine. Long long taste. A wow wine in the making! Had this at a quick tasting at Hedonism wines. Love this place! Still havent come across anywhere else you can sample such superior wines to satisfy your curiosity!
