A lovely deep, dense purple colour and a complex and opulent nose of black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) and spices -an indication of excellent ripeness. Very well integrated fresh and toasty oak. Silky, powerful, firm and well-coated tannins on the palate along with attractive subtle oak. Delicately smooth with a long, fresh and flavoursome finish. One of the estate’s best vintages, in which structure and elegance predominate. A wine that will appeal to lovers of powerful, fruity wines. It will cellar for at least 20 years.
