A full-bodied wine with both regional and varietal characters on display on the bouquet, then a powerful palate with blackberry, dark chocolate, vanillan oak and abundant tannins. Needs, and will repay, those with patience.
Score: 90 points -- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion, 2018
This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue. Vibrant aromatics of red and black berry fruits, a lift of violet florals, clove spice and mixed garden herbs. The palate is dominated by a lively burst of berry fruits, which are well framed by fine, powdery tannins. Juicy plum and blackberry flavours persist through the finish, with sweet spice to close. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends and good conversation.
