Appearance:

Slightly opaque garnet with a ruby hue.

Aromas: Primary aromas of concentrated red and black fruits, sweet black raspberries, wild blueberries, cherries lift out of the glass. Prune, raisin, fig, leather and brown spice follow. Underlying hints of roasted hazelnuts, cedar, vanilla and subtle violet notes tantalize your nose.

Palate: Concentrated fruit flavours of brambleberries, dates, pepper, brown spice are on the forefront of the palate. Following closely behind are seductive notes of toasted cedar, leather, dried herbs and well integrated oak nuances.  A concentrated medium bodied wine with depth and a textured mid-palate of toasted hazelnuts, espresso and cocoa.  The grippy, layered tannins and balanced acidity provide structure and focus all the way to the med-long finish.  Lingering flavours of leather, dried fruit, and spice remain on the finish.  Tertiary complexities persist in the background of this wine and will continue to develop and integrate over time, a wine to drink with red meats or game meats and to age in your cellar.
