Winemaker Notes

Nose:
Intensely dark, almost black with a purple hue. The nose is lifted and fragrant with blueberry and violets leaping from the glass before a complex background of licorice, boot polish, freshly turned earth and cooked meat emerges. Each sniff reveals more intriguing characters.

Palate:
Carefully balances ripeness and elegance opening with fruit characters of plum and blackberry leaf before nuances of smoked meats, forest floor and cinnamon stick are revealed. The earthy character is a real highlight and provides wonderful elegance as the palate builds nicely to a long finish with fine powdery tannins rounding it out nicely.
