Dark fruits and chocolate with good intensity.


Full dark fruit with grainy tannins, medium length with dark chocolate on the finish.


The fermentation was in a combination of open and closed static tanks and was completed in the tank before being pressed off skins at dryness after 12-18 days of skin contact.
The wine was then matured for 10 months in about one third new French oak from the forests of Allier, Nevers and the centre of France.


Deep garnet.
