Expert Reviews

Deep, bright purple-red; the smooth and luscious bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit supported by neatly judged oak is followed by a palate with excellent mouthfeel and balance; ripe blackberry and licorice flavours are accompanied by ripe tannins and more of the stylish oak of the bouquet.
