A full bodied intensely flavoured wine with a velvety mouth-feel. The palate is concentrated and ripe with raspberry coulis, plum skin, cola and choc mint flavours with hints of leather, liquorice and charcuterie. The tannins are dense but still silky soft and give the wine great texture and length. A wine standing the test of time.
