Colour: Deep red.
Aroma: Dark plums, chocolate and pink peppercorn characters are the primary drivers of this wine. A second sniff reveals a little earthiness and tar -like notes plus a swirl of oak that almost goes unnoticed.
Palate: The palate is rich and ripe with a core of sweet plum/prune-like flavours that lead to more savoury, spicy nuances on the finish. Fine tannins and good acidity add backbone to the wine.
Summary: A lovely medium bodied wine that demands food. Try it with something retro like a medium rare carpet bag steak. Drink now and over the next 3 – 5 years.
