Deep red in colour with a purple hue. A complex savoury nose with fruit characters of plums and cassis. Notes of hot tar, roasted coffee and five spice give additional interest to the aromatic profile. The palate is full bodied and very rich with a toasty and savoury complexity. The richness coming from both the very ripe fruit and the new barrels. An umami like savouriness-beef stock and mushroom-comes from a long maturation time on yeast lees without racking. Supple front palate tannins come from gentle extraction of the grape skins. These tannins help balance the fruit richness and give the wine structure without contributing hardness.
