Appearance is a deep maroon red in glass. The wine has an attractive but complex bouquet of plum, red berries and white pepper flavors. It is well balanced with interesting layers of dark berry fruit and some spices, complemented by good integrated tannins and a long soft finish. Impressive. Barrel aged for 24 months in French oak barrels. The final wine was selected from a final selection of barrels to ensure the complexity and balance of the final wine.
