The colour is a deep black cherry red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
The complex bouquet features rich ripe sweet Merlot characters and spicy fruit aromas, integrated with vanillin French and American oak characteristics.
The palate is medium bodied, soft and rounded with sweet fruit characters of plum and black cherry. The fruit is interwoven with vanillin oak flavours and balanced soft tannins all enhanced by the combinations of French and American oak.
The wine shows a solid structure which, although drinking well already, will continue to age for 5-10 years. An excellent accompaniment to red meat, your favourite barbeque, or richly flavoured pasta dishes.
