Tasting Notes:
A medium to full bodied wine with lifted aromatics of mulberries, plums, spice and chocolate, plus some subtle charry notes from the oak. The flavours are focussed and intense, with generosity of fruit and a strong fine-grained tannin structure. The wine is drinking well now but will also age gracefully for up to 10 years.
