Full, very dark, black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and gently concentrated with aromas of dark-red and black plums along with subtle notes of redcurrants and blackcurrants, along with an amalgam of earth and spices, Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and succulent flavours of dark-red and black plums entwined with notes of curranty fruit, herbs and earth, unfolding liquorice and spice elements. The fruit sweetness is balanced by finem grainy tannin structure, with good underlying acidity providing drive and line. The wine carries positively to a sustained finish of black plums with growing grip. This is a rich dark-red and black plum fruited red blend with grainy tannin structure and linearity.
