The wine displays a stunning deep garnet colour with a ruby red rim. The nose of this wine is almost hedonistic with notes of ripe fresh prunes, blueberries and blackberries. There are aromas of cedar and vanilla giving a beautiful perfume which supports the hint of blue violets emanating from the glass. The palate is classy and re ned with rich dark fruit and a silky mid-palate. The wine leaves one with a dry chalky nish with a hint of a pepper bite.
