The palate shows ripe berry fruit, with a hint of mint and a spicy edge. Nose reminiscent of mulberries, cassis and plums with underlying nuances of wood and vanilla. Medium to full bodied wine with well-integrated wood, balanced ripe fruit mid-palate, and a persistent, yet soft, tannin finish.
Very drinkable now but will age well for 3 years.
Serve this wine with a variety of meat dishes, or a platter of cold meats such as ham, salami, spiced beef, silver-side and picked vegetables.
Suitability for vegetarians or vegans: Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.
