Midnight black in colour with a dark red black tinged hue. Lifted dark plum and liquorice aromas lead the way with dried herb, vanillin cedar and spice notes also chiming in. Soft and fleshy, the medium to full bodied palate is richly flavoured with lush dark plum and liquorice fruits which overlay a back drop of subtle vanillin cedar and fennel. Spicy finish with silky tannins and a spicy blue to dark fruited aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.

Formerly known as Dodgy Brothers. Totally opaque dark purple black colour with a bright purple red hue. The nose exhibits a youthful combination of ripe blueberry, plum and liquorice aromas followed by vanillin cedar and spice. Medium weight there’s a fruity richness to the ripe blueberry, plum and liquorice flavours which run into some prominent spicy vanillin cedar. Bright fresh finish with the slightly chalky tannins largely obscured by the fruit. Aftertaste of ripe blueberries, plum, liquorice and spicy vanillin cedar.
Cellar 5-6 years.
