Sweetly perfumed - clove and cinnamon backed up with dark plums, vanilla and a touch of cedar. Richly fruited. Plums and forest berries with savoury leather and cigar notes. Seamless and dense tannins add to the sense of warmth. Opulence nicely balanced with a red vibrancy and spice on the finish. This wine is a brilliant match for red meats, game and pasta dishes. A perfect partner for casseroled lamb shanks or with scotch fillet, roasted rare. Recommended cellaring 3-15 years.
