The nose shows a subtle blend of freshness and finesse. Hints of oak and cherries in brandy show through.The palate is elegant and supple with flavours of red berry fruit and spices. A tight-grained tannic structure comes through in the finish, giving this wine the backbone of a great wine to lay down.
