Deep black dark red heart with a dark red hue. Filling the nostrils are ripe dark raspberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits which are trailed by some vanillin earth and spice notes. Rich, juicy and plump the palate is flooded with dark raspberry, liquorice and black cherry flavours which overlay vanillin cedar, earth and spicy pepper characters. Sleek yet nicely built tannin structure with a long succulent finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews....
A delicious rendition of a style that has blossomed over the past 10 to 20 years, here gaining an extra degree in an excellent vintage. Winemaker Charlie Melton has been a leader of the pack from the start, and intends to keep it there. Drink to 2025.
