Its nose is complex with aromas of black cherries, perfume, pepper and liquorice. On the palate, it starts with flavours of dark berry fruit and lavender, while the finish is dry and reminiscent of currant and savoury notes. Tannins are forthcoming but well incorporated and ripe. This wine is quite shy while young and will continue to develop and become more expressive over the next 8 years from vintage and beyond.
The warm earthy notes of the wine will suite a tomato-based casserole beautiful, or a rich cheese fondue!
