Notes: A mature yet elegant wine, a wine that expresses a quiet confidence of one who has lived and gained from life’s experiences yet is in no hurry to divulge its secrets.
The nose is dominated by the complex tertiary aromas of leather, mushroom and black olive as well as a meaty character that beautifully balances the notes of ripe black and red fruit; hints of spice add interest and complexity. The palate offers nice acidity which freshens up the ripe fruit, tannins are beautifully integrated and the finish is long.
