WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Black with deep violet reections. At first there are aromas of figs, redcurrant and ink offering a rich fruitiness to the wine. This is followed by scents of cloves, vanilla, smoked meat and a touch of toasted bread.
In palate is a full bodied wine; fresh, juicy with hints of strawberries and cherries. Has a pleasant acidity on the finish.
