Winery Tasting Notes

The wine has a superb deep ruby colour. Intense primary fruit characters such as cassis from ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, mulberry and plum from Merlot and the perfume and red currant of Cabernet Franc are complexed by secondary characters such as cedar, tobacco, spice, leather and licorice derived from barrel aging. These will develop further with more bottle age. Ample ripe fine tannins give the wine a firm structure with a rich, supple texture. The result is a wine with elegance, power and concentration.
