Midnight black at its core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Aromas of blackcurrant infused with black olives show good elevation over cedar, tobacco leaf and spicy herb notes. Medium to full bodied, rich blackcurrant fruits are matched against tobacco leaf, black olive, dusty cedar, dried herb and spice characters. Dryish finish with firmly built tannins lending grip to the medium length aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.

Other Reviews…..
The best parcel of fruit ex the Scholar Vineyard, then a best barrel selection. An attractive, medium-bodied wine; juicy blackcurrant/cassis fruit, supple tannins, very good length and balance. From the great '18 vintage. Drink by 2038.
