Wine.comColour: Deep red with magenta hues. Nose: Expressive varietal lift - predominantly blackcurrant with a hint of tomato leaf. Wild raspberry and blackberry nuances become evident as the wine sits in the glass. A subtle background of spicy, smoky oak. Palate: Generous ripe berry fruits - like blackcurrant conserve - with a suggestion of praline. Pronounced, yet not aggressive, tannins. Finishes with a fruit sweetness and balanced oak/tannin firmness. Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: This wine will gain complexity and evolve with careful cellaring. An ideal accompaniment to roast lamb.
