We’ve tasted this
In the glass, the wine is an intense red colour with a vibrant purple hue to the edge.
The nose gives enticing, lifted aromas of ripe blackcurrants, mint chocolate, subtle spice and a hint of dried tomato leaf. The overall nose character is one of richness and elegance. The palate it is a very well-balanced wine with ripe blackcurrant characters, along with chocolate and mint intermingling harmoniously with oak characters of cedar and subtle tobacco. There is an understated power to the wine, with layers of complexity building across the palate and then finishing elegantly with long, fine tannins. It is a generous wine yet retains poise and the elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine had a period of extended skin contact before being pressed and transferred to fine-grained French oak barrels (40% new, 60% 2 - 3 year old) for a period of 18 months maturation prior to being bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
