Appearance: Bright, clean intense red with a ruby coloured backdrop
Aroma: Aromatically very complex with ripe, jammy fruits, fine spices, dried fruit and nuts perfectly balanced with the oak flavours from the barrel ageing
Taste: Powerful and well balanced with the slightly fleshy feel of velvet. The tannins make themselves known, providing a pleasant and elegant complexity. It has a pleasant mouth feel and a long intense finish.
