Opaque red/black almost to rim.
Opulent and alcoholic nose - complex and rich with aromas of cassis, capsicums, vanilla and sweaty, dark fruits.
Full bodied and lush, with sweet cassis/plum fruit, peppery oak and tobacco flavours.
Alcoholic with good balance, firm tannins and a long, complex, herbaceous finish.
Lovely now, this will be stunning in 5 to 6 years.
