Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) Very loud flowers and ripe.dried herbs are detected in the exotic aroma, along with a wide array of fruits - cherries, cranberries, mulberries, plums, boysenberries and blackberries. Also showing is a warm, rich, earth character leading into forest floor. The palate is immediately fruity with all sorts of red and blackberries, lots of dark cherries, boysenberries and a seam of violets working through. It is rich and juicy with lively, gritty tannins. A very long earth and dried herb end with a twist of liquorice and blackberry completes the finish. This is a big wine built for the long haul. Recommended read more...to be cellared for many years.
