The color is deep red with a dense black centre, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise.
It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit. A supple wine, it is lively and inviting and finishes satisfyingly firm. A wonderful drop, indeed. This wine is a superb accompaniment for beef, rich game dishes or a good cheddar cheese and will continue to age gracefully for another 5 years' careful cellaring.
