Deep purple in colour with a crimson edge. Captivating aromas of mulberry, dark plum, and blueberry fruit with notes of coffee, star anise and cinnamon along with polished leather and earth adding intrigue to the bouquet. A powerful combination of rich sweet blackberry fruit and fine tannin gives this wine great depth of flavour, with balance and texture.
