Deep, opaque red in colour with aromas of intense berry fruit with subtle oak complexity. On the palate it is rich, full and concentrated, showing great depth of fruit with well-integrated American oak, good tannic structure and a firm, dry finish.
This late bottled Vintage shows brooding black cherry fruit with a huge cedary core. A simple wine with a fine dark colour, ripe and mouth filling and rounded off by sweet finish.
The wine shows a youthful toasty, smoky bouquet with intense, spicy fruit characters. The palate is long and focused and very elegant, with ripe concentrated fruit and well integrated oak, good balance and fine structured tannins.
