Winery Tasting Notes

Medium to full red-purple; a solid, complex bouquet with a range of fruit aromas having nuances of Shiraz, even a touch of licorice. The palate is rich and voluptuously sweet with high gloss minty berry fruit. The oak has been very well handled, playing a strong but appropriate support role.
