The colour is deep ruby red with a dark cherry-like core. Dense and intense aromatics are laced with a lifted perfume fragrance. The fruit shows cherry and blueberry pie with cassis, blackberries and tamarillo. More complex aromas show savoury characters like straw, graphite, char, dark chocolate, pencil shavings and even some herbs like thyme and sage. As a result, the wine is very seductive, with a degree of mystique and flair. A degree of intimacy is immediately apparent on the palate. The initial fruit sweetness makes way for supple tannins that draw outwards from the middle. This opens the centre up for the fruit weight to show and also broadens the mouthfeel, giving the wine an approachable appearance. The wine comes back together at the back via a gentle acidity in the form of cherries and tamarillo. All the time, the wine just wants to please.
