This wine is a Journey in a glass. Correctly named "Layers", the craftsmanship of this wine presents a boquet of spice box aromas that later go smokey, then turn to the richness of smoked meat as time allows in the glass.

Again on the palate, the time in the glass dictates the flavour sequence. Early flavours of black pepper laiden fruit smooth out over time. Black Cherry, and smoked raspberries develop with an pleasent finish of soft tannis wrapped in earthy licorice. A big mouth feel to accompany a nice beef stew on a cold day or a strip steak covered in peppercorn sauce.

Lovely layers of cigar box, smoke, luscious red and black fruits, & baking spices. Tannins present but in check, lovely balance and doing well for an '08. Nice spice on finish. Tasted March 2015.
