This is a dense, full-bodied wine with inviting aromas of dark berries, mocha and herbs. Intensely flavoured with ripe dark fruit on the palate, the wine is nonetheless dry and balanced, with smooth tannins and refreshing savoury notes on the generous finish. Drink now with BBQ fare, especially grilled steak with herbs, or cellar for 3+ years.
