Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Colour: Deep youthful crimson red. Bouquet: Mulberry and blueberry fruits are interlaced with hints of spicy oak, licorice, and eucalyptus. Rich fruitcake notes and chocolate are framed within the lifted berry fruit of Coonawarra. Palate: Fleshy small berry and plum fruit flavours are harmoniously laced with savoury notes. Fine tannins, subtle oak, and a long finish enhance a generous mouthfeel.

    nice dark, damp cork. Left to breathe 20 minutes. Great color in the glass. Instant blackberry taste on the tongue. Aged well and ready to drink.
