Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
Deep intense purple garnet colour with a faint hint of amber on the edges. Lovely, very slightly spicy, ripe, plum-blueberry-cassis nose with some gentle cedar notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, very intense, well structured and yet harmonious, ripe, firm, Damson plum flavours with a lingering, bright, still surprisingly grippy, cassis-tinged finish. Great in a large glass with a steak. This mouthfilling blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot has 14% alcohol and under 2 g/L residual sugar. The 2015 vintage was extremely dry and the lower yield has augmented the level of dry extract as a result of lower juice ratios. CSPC 15203

TASTING NOTE: With smoky aromas and structured tannins, this is still young and firm. Under those tannins, the black currant fruit is developing to give a ripe wine with fine acidity and structure.
