Share this wine:

Dense almost opaque black cherry colour. A complex hedonistic nose of warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, vanilla and cedar. The palate is rich, dense and generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose alongside a distinctive fine gravelly texture and twist of steel. Incredible cellaring potential although will always be delicious.
