Deep, dark mocha and chocolate… vanillan spice and cassis… blackcurrant and briary earth. Margaret River cabernet – typically gorgeous.
Blackcurrant leaps from the glass, but the scents go deeper into forest berries, dense satsuma plum and briary, earthy funk, intense dark chocolate, mocha and a dash of dark spices and bay leaf. Cedary blackfruits dominate the palate, but you will find rich, dark chocolate, liquorice, red & blue berries, a heady mix of eastern spice. Firm (yet fine) tannins follow the length of the palate, structural acidity holds it together, and a dusting of graphite oak to round it all out. Medium weight yet densely flavoured.
Drink with rich/rare red meats, hearty stews, tomato-based pasta and pizza.
