This wine has blackberry and currant flavours, and is supported by cedar, dark chocolate and fennel hints that flow into a vibrant palate. It is an elegant, full-bodied red wine that has a smooth palate showing blackcurrant fruit. It has great balance, dense tannins and a long, slightly smoky finish.
