Deep, crimson color with purple tints. On the nose, initial floral aromas of violets evolve to berry fruits and blackcurrant, with spices, rose pepper and nutmeg being revealed with each swirl of the glass. The palate is already open and appealing, showing its full, fruity aromatic richness, with fine, supple tannins and a hint of vanilla. The finish is long and intense and shows something of the wines excellent potential.

Dark cherry colored. Exotic spices that smell like a Moroccan spice market – cloves and star anise. The palate is solid and focussed with hints of tobacco, cinnamon, nutmeg and lovely black fruits with savory, earthy undertones. Fine tannins provide a stylish finish.

Dark purple-red, with a garnet edge. Fresh and fruit driven with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Some cherry notes on the nose. A combination of forest fruits with blackberries and mulberries. Savory aromatic spices of anise and nutmeg with some coffee and chocolate notes. Silky, delicate tannins; good acidity and well balanced. Ages beautifully with the berry notes becoming more prominent over time. It has decades to give, cellar up to 20+ years.
