(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.
International Wine Cellar(2006 Vintage) Vivid ruby-red. Fragrant red berry, cherry and Asian spice aromas gain power with air, picking up suave cola and mineral notes. Energetic and sharply focused, with racy strawberry and raspberry flavors, nervy minerality and silky tannins. I really like the combination of sweetness and brightness here. Finishes clean, tangy and long. This is a real bargain.
