Colour : Deep ruby red with a lovely youthful violet hue. Nose : A enchantingly fragrant nose of fresh macerated berries entwined with sweet vanillin, mixed spice, cedar and a hint of perfumed violets. Palate : Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote, along with juicy plum driving the up front fleshiness which coalesce with a delightful melange of underlying notes of chocolate coated dark cherry, mint, toasty oak, spicy clove, earthy truffle and a hint of espresso. A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards the wealth of mouth coating tannins, culminating in a soft, lingering raspberry licorice finish and a warming trace of black pepper.
