Colour: Beautiful deep, bright red with intense glints of violet. Nose: Complex, pleasantly powerful, fruity, mineral, smoky, toasty notes, intense with good depth. Clean, pure, elegant and refined. Palate: Mellow, smooth attack, developing an elegant, refined tannin structure. The palate is powerful, rich and complex, suggesting excellent potential to improve with age. Concentrated, powerful aromatic profile with fruity, mineral and toasted notes. The overall impression is of good length and complexity; a charming wine that should age well.

Wine AdvocateDeep, rich, red and black currant fruit, plum, soy and Asian spice are present in this inky/purple wine, which is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins, outstanding concentration and very impressive aromatics.

Wine SpectatorThis has a solid, gutsy feel, with lots of briar underscoring the vivid plum sauce, fig and blackberry fruit flavors. A bolt of licorice snap emerges on the fleshy finish. A strong showing.

Wine EnthusiastBig, fresh and juicy, this is a bright and forward wine. Attractive smoky tannins are layered with fresh acidity and black currant flavors. The wine is already attractive, although there are enough tannins for it to age.
