Purple-crimson; follows in the footsteps of the very good '08; the medium- to full-bodied palate revels in its wanton display of licorice, spice, blackberry and dark plum fruit balanced by ripe tannins and integrated oak.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep plum with a purple plum hue.
The aroma shows lifted spice, dark berry fruit and ripe plums. Integrated with savoury oak notes and hints of dried sage.
Intense bright fruits of plum, blackcurrant, blackberry and plums are integrated well with savoury oak spice. Nuances of smoked and cured meats linger finishing with a subtle hint of char. Firm natural acidity is balanced with the fine grained tannins giving exceptional structure with great ageing potential. Brilliant intensity with persistence and length of both fruit and savoury flavours.
A perfect accompaniment to rich red meat dishes.
