A wine whose colour is vibrant with youth. Very deep purple mauve colour, with deep purple hue. Lifted raspberry top notes, followed by liquorice and a hint of pepper. The palate has good weight, with raspberry and liquorice flavours evident, a touch lighter than expected, dryish tannins. Aftertaste of spice, raspberry and liquorice.
Cellar 2-3 years (2007-2008)
Good colour; once again, no reduction evident; a range of blackberry, raspberry, plum and spice flavours; fine, silky tannins; overall elegance and length.
