While usually seen as part of a blend with cabernet and merlot, here this dark tannic grape steps out of its usual supporting role to star in a deep, brooding wine built for long aging. Pronounced red fruit aromas dominate the nose and then replay on the palate along with cedar flavours, ripe tannins and the corresponding high acidity that gives this wine great balance. This wine is capable of aging well in a cellar and should develop in very interesting ways within 5-10 years.

Palate: Medium-bodied, dry, fruity but firm with a lovely note of violets in the rich plum flavour. Evident tannins on the finish but they’re ripe and forgiving.
