Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) A mix of dark plum, blackberry and fig fruit rumbles along here, with a charcoal note cutting a broad swath. Solid, if a bit blunt in the end, as bittersweet cocoa clamps own on the finish. Went for obvious extraction, and now we have to wait and see if this stretches out in time or stays landlocked by the square tannins.

    Strong fragrance of oak. Complex wine, rather tannic, hints of black fruit.

    deep ruby colour. full aroma, blackcurrant and spice with a slight floral aroma. medium body, soft, initial dry yet slightly milk chocolatey with well balanced acidity and nice integrated tannins with edge spice with good length. nicely layered wine. very pleasant!
