Dark, deep garnet in colour, this wine has sumptuous aromas of ripe berries, vanilla and spicy oak. Opens with a velvety richness, but the acidity enlivens the weight and pops the flavours. The senses will pick up light roasted almond, cranberry, raspberries with a hint of barnyard complexity-earthy and gamey that is underlined with a sweet oak character and a succulent finish. Layered and velvety, it's ready to drink and food-friendly. Think pork chops or salmon.
