The colour of the wine is brilliant red. The aroma shows hints of wood spice and mint with attractive dark berry fruit. On the palate the wine is rich and full with juicy soft tannins and good acidity. The wine has a long finish but is drinkable at present. It will however mature for up to six years from vintage.
