Baked plum, fragrant blue flower, sweet baking spice, eucalyptus and a balsamic note are just some of the aromas you'll find on this bold, delicious wine. The round, smooth palate delivers layers of ripe wild cherry, raspberry compote, mocha, vanilla, star anise and a hint of raisin alongside velvety, enveloping tannins that give it a silky texture. Despite the big structure, it has an almost weightless feel.
