In the glass the wine is a dark purple, almost black plumb colour with a purple rim around the edge of the glass.
On the nose: It has a cold rich plumb classic Bordeaux, fruit perfume with dark cherries just lurking in the background with a touch of oak all wrapped up in the cool dark fruit.
The palate is medium to full weight with wonderful ripe tannins and a solid body of cool dark plumb with layers of sweet dark chewy cherries unwinding with each mouthful.
As the wine opened over two hours the sweet dark cherries turned to a exotic spice leather thing going on in the background.
This is an outstanding wine although sill a little tight and could use a few more years to show what it really has.
At the end of the day this wine is just a Cab/Merlot. But not as we know it in Australia.
There is no rating, other than WOW for the pure enjoyment that this wine has brought me.
the Rot has set in. Michael Lillis
