Maroon red with aromatic notes of cedar and spice. Matured only in French oak has allowed a more structural wine to develop adding texture, spice and a long granular tannin profile. Ripe dark fruits of blackberry and plums. The darker fruit spectrum is instantly noticed but then more savoury nuanced characters of roasted walnuts, smoked meats and black olives arise. A complex and even wine each time you taste different flavour come to the fore.
