Lovely deep crimson colour with a lighter hue. A smooth, complex combination of aromas and flavours in a cool climate, Rhone style wine. Black currant aromas abound, overlaid with white pepper spice. Hits the tongue with big fruit flavours. A soft mouth filling mid weight palate with spicy- particularly peppery surrounded by fine tannins and plenty of length in the finish.
Got lots of longevity as well; up to 10 years in a good cellar if you can resist drinking it in the meantime.
