Deep dark red core with black toned edges and a dark red hue. Red currant aromas infused with mint and earth are trailed by some cedary tobacco, dried herb and spice notes. Medium bodied, elegant red currant and red cherry fruits overlay an earthy back drop of mint, cedary tobacco and spicy dried herb characters. Slightly dryish fine grained tannins with a refined mid length finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
The release window is just about correct here: at 5 years old it has softened considerably from the early, frisky, vivacity that cabernet exudes, and all things have melted into one. The spice, the fruit, the acid and the oak are seamlessly joined, making it difficult to seperate or tease apart. Elegant, mid weight and generally lovely. It has an heirloom tomato/claret aspect which is most appealing. Drink by 2029.
