Deep midnight black core with a dark red black tinged hue. Elevated peppered plum, blueberry and liquorice scents are trailed by some vanillin cedar, smoked meat and spicy dried herb notes. The mid weighted palate has an air of elegance to it with red plum, red liquorice and blueberry fruits melding into a back drop of smoked meats, spicy vanillin cedar and earth. Polished tannins finishing with a nicely balanced freshness and refined feel to the mid length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
Sourced from 5 sections of the vineyard, producing 18 batches of wines, each handled separately. Matured in French puncheons. Superlative wine showing great elegance. Concentrated ripe dark plum, blackberries, dried herbs, earthy sweetness, violet and more. The palate is laid out long in soft, ripe tannins, mouth-filling with an impressive regional and varietal declaration. Drink by 2030.
