Red

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Dark, with a loamy edge to the notes of smoldering tobacco, steeped black currant, warm plum preserves and charcoal. Deep yet understated, this unfurls slowly on the finish, with well-integrated grip imparting length

Winemaker's Notes

Broad and rich, with a loamy underlay to the mulled black currant, roasted fig and singed mesquite notes. There's also a nice backdrop of spice and tobacco, with well-buried acidity on the finish.

Aromas of black currant and licorice dominate the nose alongside secondary glimmers of black pepper and crushed violets, all framed with a sweet oak streak. Flavors of juicy black raspberry linger well into the finish.
