The wine has a vibrant carmine hue. Its aromas and flavours are a complex interplay of fruity and savoury elements, suggesting cherries, raspberries and blackberries, intermingled with roast game, grilled mushrooms, black olives, liquorice and coffee. There is a dense core of fruit in the mouth that is supported by a backbone of firm, ripe tannins which flow evenly through the palate and should help the wine age gracefully.
"It's wonderfully fruited and gorgeously styled, showing Black Doris plym, sweet cherry, vanilla, dried herb, almond and subtle spice aromas on the nose. The palate deliveres excellent weight and power, while remainging graceful and flowing, leading to a persistent velvety finish. It's mouthfilling and delectable with seductive complexity."
