Imperial purple with crimson hues. Bouquet of berries and plum jam with liquorice, chocolate and roasted cedar nuances. Abundant red and blackberry fruit flavours, hints of liquorice and pepper on the palate. Enticing tannins and focussed oak culminate in a balanced, prominent and full bodied finish to this authoritative varietal expression.  Rated: 90 Points James Halliday
