2012 TASTING NOTES:
A deep, dense ruby-red hue. Intensely aromatic with notes of red berry fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant and wild strawberries) together with mocha and even leather. Lovely aromatic freshness. A round and silky attack on the palate. The tannins are soft and elegant. A suave and very opulent wine with hints of sweet spices. Plenty of fruit and crisp freshness enhanced by high quality ageing in barrel. Subtle and lingering oak notes coming through. This is a well-constructed, harmonious wine that provides immediate drinking pleasure.
