Intense ruby with a deep opaque centre and slightly paling rim: inviting nose of wild brambles and black cherries with a minerally edge; savoury tones of roasted fennel seeds, black pepper and proscuito add depth and complexity: ripe tannins create a smooth and easy backbone with sweet ripe fruit adding mouthfeel and texture; enjoy with flame grilled steak or slow-baked smoked ribs.
Can be enjoyed now for the fresh vibrant fruit. Cellaring for 4 - 5 years will reward you well with secondary flavours and more complexity.
