The wine has a dark, rich, plummy colour going over to a lively ruby red rim. A complex combination of white pepper, cigar box, mint and a concentration of dark fruit, supported by subtle spicy undertones. The complexity on the nose flows over to the palate. The wine is big and round on entry with silky smooth tannins that show well even though the wine is still young. Nice fruit on the back palate combined with a well-balanced acidity is responsible for a lingering finish and rounds off a perfectly balanced wine.
