One hundred percent Syrah. Opens with magnificent colour saturation, impenetrable inky black core and a deep dark red black hue. Powerful aromatics of black cherry, liquorice and blackberry laced with smoky oak soar from the glass. Dried meat, black olive and blackpepper notes ensue. Rich, dense and chewy black cherry, liquorice and blackberry fruits flood the mouth underscored by gently smoked vanillin cedar, some meatiness and blackpepper. Opulent yet muscular mouthfeel with robust, firmly built tannins providing ample structure. Powerful and concentrated it finishes long and firm.
