The wine is a beauty. Bright ruby/garnet in colour and equally bright in aromatics. Lifted summer berry fruits reminiscent of strawberries, raspberries and cranberries combined with a decent lick of exotic baking spices, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace. That spicy theme continues with deeper darker, brooding fruit that almost looks like Rum & Raisin with a touch of Café Crème. There are elements of blueberries, brush-wood, rose hip and even a sliver of coal tar that sit in a sinewy structure of fresh fruit the weaves between lacy acidity and silky, gently supporting tannins.
