"Deep crimson in colour. Classic cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and violet are complemented by herbaceous notes of crushed flowering herbs and fresh oregano, supported by hints of red currant, anise and Dutch chocolate. The elegantly structured palate offers red currant, cassis and blue and black berry fruit flavours, woven with beautifully balanced fine-grained tannins and a creamy texture to create a savoury finish of great depth and length."
"Matured in French hogsheads (28% new) for 18 months. While the wine still has a long way to go, some of the tannins have softened, and hints of violets and gentle spices add to the bouquet. It should really open up as it nears its 10th birthday."
