A full-bodied, full-flavoured classic is the promise behind the very deep brick red colour. Notes of tea leaf, cedar, sweet berries, spice, chocolate and cigar box aromas which are all repeated on the palate. Ripe black forest fruits and spice are balanced by rounded tannins and seamless structure. The palate reflects the nose with flavours of cedar, stewed fruit and cigar box. Fine drying tannins. A pleasant lingering finish of cedar, cigar box and stewed fruit with hints of aromatic restrained oak coming through. A fresh vibrant palate of good depth but fresh intensity and layers of fruit.
