“A thunderous red of concentration, power, richness and ripe fruit characters. Intense bouquet of ripe plum, dark chocolate, salted licorice and malt with a faint lift of mint and eucalyptus. The palate is firm with chewy tannins, brooding ripe plum, more salted licorice and dark chocolate notes with clove and game meat chiming in. In all that muscular flex, excellent balance. Indeed, for a whopper of a red there’s freshness and lift despite the potency. Well done.”

Dark blue berry, mulberry and satsuma plum aromas arise from this elegant beauty. The deliciously rich palate overwhelms your senses with chocolate, coffee, black and red berry fruits and earthy, peppery notes.
