Rich and vibrant, the wine is dark plum in colour.
The aroma has elements of fruit and floral notes. Berries and plums combine with lavender to gift a light lifted aroma initially, with hints of pepper as it warms.
The palate also combines fruit, floral and savoury. The initial taste is rich and full of berry fruits, there is some spiciness and a floral mid palate and then the finish gives way to a hint of savoury.
The mid palate is fruity and full of plums and rhubarb.
As the mid palate recedes the tannins and acidity blend with oak to give a slightly dry but lingering aftertaste. The overall impression gives a fruity and rich wine which finishes lightly on the palate.
This wine would not overpower roast turkey or chicken and could pair well with rich oily fish like salmon or trout. Cold meats would also match well.
