Lustrous garnet. Charmingly lifted aromatics with exotic Chinese five spice, satsuma plums, savoury roast meat, herbal dried rosemary and bouquet garni. Bright brambly fruits of the forest add depth and complexity. Dark cherry and forest cake fruits, earthy with touch of cigar box. A synergy between the generous shiraz flavours of across the mid-palate and the cooler fruits with the tension and structure that only Cabernet can deliver. An artful blend of complex, buoyant fruit and spice nuances backed by moreish acidity … and of course textbook firm graphite tannins. Generous mocha notes from oak maturation lend further depth and texture to the palate.
