Attractive aromas of mocha coffee and dark chocolate blend with ripe plums and wood flavours like tobacco and cinnamon. The ripe black fruit and wood spice follow on the palate, the long finish supported by firm tannins. Enjoy with grilled Flat Iron Steak with Blue Cheese Butter or Spicy Cajun jambalaya.

The dark fruit and opulence of the wine is immediately apparent. We have been refining the viticulture to produce more balanced,flavourful fruit. Intense dark brambly fruit on the nose,mulberry,liquorice and damson plum with hints of dark chocolate and spice,tempered by a stony minerality. The medium-full bodied palate offers generous,ripe,pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity,structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality. There is a core of juiciness,opulence and richness typical of the variety,while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot lend greater complexity to the wine.
