This wine has a deep dark inky garnet color with a touch of red brick evident on the rim. This is an intensely complex wine with high toned fruit, perfumed aromas and spice dominating the nose. Here are notes of black currant, Christmas cake and a hint of mint. The palate is full and rich, mirroring the nose with flavors of Christmas cake, cassis and spice, layered with cedar and a eucalyptus finish. The tannins are fine and velvety with certain freshness and focus on the finish.
