A deep ruby colour with bright red hues
A classic, deeply concentrated nose of cassis liqueur, black currants, mulberries, menthol and dark chocolate. The nose is a reflection of the ripeness and generous fruit depth coming from the 2004 vintage.
The wine is well balanced with soft supple tannins, sweet fruit and elegant acid structure. The refined palate offers a full bodied rich wine yet well harnessed and controlled by fine chalky tannin structure
and raspberry conserve like acid. An opulent and varietal Cabernet that was made possible by near perfect vintage conditions, strategic vineyard selection and blending.
