Nice varietal lift with aromas of darker red berries, brown spices and mild toasty barrel scents. A touch of dried herb adds texture and complexity to the bouquet overall. On the palate - young, fresh, fruity, varietal with flavours of plum and raspberry, cinnamon and dusty clove, mild toasty oak layer and equal amounts of wood tannins. The dried herb flavour returns adding length and appeal. Balanced and well made. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2023.
