(2006 Vintage) The colour is a deep inky red. There is good concentration of violets on the nose with some lifted perfume from the Petit Verdot. The palate is rich, ripe and medium to full bodied. The wine is bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, plums and christmas pudding and shows great balance with the supporting spicy oak adding complexity and character. The tannins are chewy and complement the mouthfilling flavour you get when you taste the wine. The wine has great vibrancy and poise which are evident on the long seamless finish.
