Wonderfully exuberant, pungent, full, aromatic nose. Luscious, ripe, black cherry and plum fruit with notes of cedar and spice. The wine is wonderfully rich, rounded, concentrated, with layers juicy berry flavours and attractive notes of cedar. An elegant wine with good complexity. Lovely, intense finish full of flavor. Excellent with fully flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
Wine Spectator Shows mature hints, with warm fruitcake, cinnamon and pudding notes emerging from the core of gutsy blackberry and fig compote flavors. Reveals a brambly edge on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 7,800 cases made.
