Ruby-red colour. Enticing, expressive nose combines redcurrant, plum, tobacco, chocolate, light cedar and sexy oak. Supple with a good core of ripe tannins, nicely concentrated and fresh, with dark cherry and floral notes. Medium finish.

A superb and exceptional vintage.

"Smoky, earthy notes intermixed with espresso roast, chocolate, plums, and black currants jump from the glass of this dark plum/ruby coloured wine. Chewy and fleshy, with sweet fruit, ripe tannin, medium to full body, and a sexy mouthfeel, it should be enjoyed between 2005-2016." Robert Parker: 88-90/100.

Fully ripe fruit was harvested by hand in wonderful vintage conditions. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled vats with extended maceration before the wine was transferred to new French oak barriques to undergo malolactic conversion.

The exposure to oak at this stage imparted a lovely milky softness to the palate. The wine remained in barrel for 18 months, mellowing and gaining cedar notes.
