Nose – clean on the nose, with a pronounced intensity, fully developed, with aromas of stewed black fruit – plums, dried currants, spent tea leaves, leather, cedar and spice.

Palate – a dry wine, with medium (+) acidity, smooth well-integrated somewhat drying medium tannins, medium (+) alcohol and a medium body, with a medium (+) intensity, with flavours of black plum, stewed black cherry, and a woody hint. The length is medium (+) with a clean finish.
