An intoxicating nose - savoury earthy and mineral with spicy black fruits. The medium bodied palate shows black plums - flesh and skins, a note of liquorice finishing with fine gravelly tannins. Barb was convinced this was Australian when tasted blind.

Deep Ruby with developing aromas of black fruit, toasty smoky oak and cracked black pepper. On the palate this full body shows flavors of black cherry and blackberry with notes of dried fruits, cacao and meaty spice. Vivid acidity with pointed full tannins ending with fruit and toasty oak. Very Nice, set down for a few years.

About 30 minutes after opening, fruit flavors lost out to a more meat-like taste/aroma. Couldn’t catch the licorice others attributed to it. Full-body.

Very smooth, with dark fruit, smooth tannins, nice acidity, and some earthiness as well.
