An intense violet colour with aromas of black fruits, violets, spices and notes of mineral and graphite result in a great balance and freshness in the mouth. Good concentration, medium structure and soft tannins lead to a persistent finish.
We Liked it. Ripe and flashy, but pulls it off, with gorgeous mouthfeel and loads of lush raspberry ganache, boysenberry and plum sauce notes, all kept going by a graphite streak on the lengthy finish. Drink now. Smart Buy. Score: 90 (James Molesworth, winespectator.com, Feb. 28, 2011)
