94 Points RP
lt is garnet/ruby red in color. Fragrant and balanced, this structured wine opens with an alluring fragrance of red rose petal, black raspberry, leather and spice. The ripe, savory palate delivers mature black cherry, balsamic notes, subtle oak and a touch of vanilla, all supported by a firm, tannic backbone and fresh acidity. The bouquet is complex, savoury spiced with notes of liquorice, pepper and roses. The fIavour is full bodied, austere, harmonious and welI balanced.

Very good together with stews, braised red meat or game and seasoned cheese. If matured it is the perfect wine for meditation.
