Impressive crimson hue with depth and moderate intensity. There is a sense of restraint with gentle savoury notes – bay leaf and a suggestion of earthiness. The fruit profile leans toward black fruit with elements of blackcurrant, dark plums, and a note of cedary oak. It is multi-layered, saturating the palate with flavour, yet has a sense of weightlessness. The tannins are fine but firm, the oak refined and unimposing, the finish – neat, pure and long. Will benefit from further maturation.
