Wine Description

(From 1997 Vintage) Exotic, smoky nose; redcurrant, cinnamon and spice flavours and fresh acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) Ruby red with garnet hues and really youthful. Well developed and intense nose, there are aromas of cinnamon, earth, sweet red cherry and strawberry, anise and Brett. Overall, a very sweet and spicy nose. Medium to full bodied, really silky, with a great mouth feel, lively and rich on the palate, extremely drinkable, with sweet and ripe tannins. There are beautiful pure sweet red cherry and warm forest floor flavors, mixed with exotic spices in the mouth. Medium to long finish, with lingering sweet red fruits and spices in the aftertaste.

    Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 06/09. Serge Hochar's estate red has a sweet, earthy succulence in 2000 that's hard to resist, a combination of raspberry liqueur, mocha, black olives and very rich earth. It's all interwoven with chewy, firm tannins and stony minerality. The structure should hold it for another decade.
