healthy, bright red. Small air of reduction, so decant this. The nose has a warm spread led by black cherry, and also includes a sprinkle of dust and spice, which works well. This drinks well now – black fruits, hints of sweetness and violet feature. It is nicely blended, has a good Syrah presence for its colour and black fruiting. All as one wine, with a little spice and pepper on the finale. Solid quality, harmonious wine that will not disappoint, can be drunk solo or with grills. The fruit is grand, is near to a w.o.w. wine. 13.5°. To 2015  Oct 2012
