A regimen of regular rackings introduces the essential aeration to round out the tannins.

The nose shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit, dark cherries, blackberry and currants that evolve in the glass to reveal coffee, delicate oak and smoky notes. Peppercorns and spice add lift and harmony to the richly aromatic palate. The wine is fresh and lively in the mouth, with persistant flavours and good length, true to its origins, solidly built around a structure of solid tannins.
