Dark ruby red in color, there is pomegranate, cola, red raspberry, black cherry, black berry and sandalwood on the nose. Upon entry, black cherry, wild strawberry and plum burst forward as vanilla and subtle, sweet oak spice supports. The finish is long, balanced, lingering and pleasant – leaving a sweet toasty-oak imprint on the palate.
Balanced and complex, this wine is drinkable now, but should age nicely for another 10 or more years.
Perfect with light and delicate food such as steamed or grilled fish and chicken.
