The aroma of the wine is fruit driven with combination of red current, cassis and plum fruits. The fruit is supported by violets, black olives and hints of vanilla and spice. The fruit from the aroma follows through unto the delightful palate, supported by a soft mineral feel with hints of oak and backed by a seamless tannin structure. This elegant wine offers great middle palate complexity with a long spicy finish.
