Fruit was sourced from 22 year old vines with maturation taking place in French oak barriques for a period of 11 months. Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Elevated dark cherry, anise and dark plum aromas are trailed by toasty oak and spicy dried herb notes. Possessing plenty of richness the palate is well endowed with spicy dark cherry and dark plum fruits which marry into anise, toasty oak and dried herb nuances. Fleshy feel with velvety tannins and a medium to long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 13.5%
