The nose is very aromatic and inviting; ripe blackberries, black cherries and toasty oak. Medium to full body, richly concentrated mouth feel with smoky bouquet of blackberries, black cherries even slightly jammy fruit with cassis, cedar, chocolate and leather. Acidity is fresh and tannins are grainy. Finish is long smooth with rich flavours. Very enjoyable to people who enjoy their wines fruity with more use of oak. Good value.
