This luxuriant, firmly structured wine is marked by intense black fruit and cassis flavors and aromas with nuances of spice, nutmeg and sweet herbs set in a plummy, saturated texture ending in a lush finish.

Appealing fresh and intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The palate displays wonderfully luscious, rich black fruit flavour supported by firm but supple tannins.

Deeply colored, with intense freshness and juiciness to the blackberry, dark plum and raspberry tart flavors that extend with hints of cedar on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

A fine, elegant bouquet. Intense dark chocolate and rich luscious black berry and cherry fruit aromas. Full, ripe, rounded fat fruit mouthful. Fills the mouth to bursting with juicy black fruit, liquourice and chocolate. A wine with lovely textural quality; velvety, smooth. The finish is full of flavor and wonderfully intense and long.

A well-balanced wine, bringing both rich fruit and sweet tannins to go with dense concentration. There is ripeness from black jam and sweet jelly, followed by a good core of dryness.

This is all about power and rich fruit. A great depth of flavor, dark and brooding, but also with great sweetness and richness. This is an outstanding powerful wine which will age.

Aromas of blueberry and almond follow through to a full-bodied palate. Medium sweet, round and chewy. Slightly one-dimensional. Drink now.
