Tasting Note

Wine shows notes of blackberries, tabaco leaf and red forest berries. On the palade the wine shows big bold fruit flavours that is in line with the nose. There is an abundance of tannin structure and hint of dark chocolate and cedar wood coming through from the oak barrels. This wine drinks well now but will benefit another 3 years of cellaring and should drink best around 2028.
