TASTING NOTES

Intense dark ruby. Ripe dark fruit, graphite, cassis, a subtle herbaceousness, nuances of blueberry and thyme backed with hints of cedarwood and pencil shavings. Soft, voluptuous integrated tannins with a rich creamy cassis freshness. Silky smooth mid-palate with a finish that is full of dark fruit and long lingering flavours.
