Bright magenta with purple and violet hues. The bouquet displays lifted blackcurrant and raspberry fruits with chocolate, vanilla and bay leaf notes.Medium bodied, upfront flavours of cassis, black olive and blackberry are combined with mocha and forest floor notes adding complexity. A well-defined palate with supple and soft tannins, complimented by careful use of quality French oak that leads to a lovely, savoury finish.A wine to be enjoyed upon release, with the potential to cellar for up to 10 years.
