Deep dark red black tinged colour with a dark red hue. The nose serves up aromas of red plum and red liquorice infused with clove followed by some vanillin cedar and peppered meat notes. The elegant, mid weighted palate features a savoury flavour profile of red plum and red liquorice fruits over a subtle clove, dried meat, black olive and peppered herb back drop. Fine grained tannins with a refined and peppery medium to long conclusion.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews…..
From a single site at Seville Estate planted in 1996; 30% whole bunches and matured in seasoned French puncheons. The product of a cool year, this was picked during the first week of April, meaning the fruit had plenty of hang time. It shows in the wine too. A fabulous, deep, bright, crimson purple. Densely packed with dark fruits, black peppercorns, olive tapenade and some intriguing iodine notes. A rich but balanced mouthful; juicy, yet structured. Fine, long-chained tannins round out a super wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for at least another 10 years. Drink by 2032.
