A brilliant purple-red colour that shines in the glass. Aromas of violets, crushed boysenberry and blackberry with hints of roasted cinnamon, clove and green pepper. A balanced mid palate leads to a fine tannin finish with spices and length supported by French oak. Although fresh and appealing in its youth, the wine will reward cool cellaring for 8-12 years for those looking to enjoy the full complexity of fine Pinot Noir over time.
