The appearance of this wine is brilliant; it really glistens in the glass when poured.

A very deep, concentrated red with a very dark centre and edges of red-toned hues suggesting a full-bodied oak matured wine.

The initial aromas are dominated with fragrant red fruits over spices and liquorice/earthy notes. As it breathes more obvious notes of loganberries, cranberry and mulberry fruits with maraschino cherry, dark chocolate and intense plum notes. There is an impressive background of fine-grain, cedary oak notes.

The palate is immense and beautifully structured with complex layers of exotic fruit flavours mixed with silky fine acidity. The mineral edged tannins are superb, almost elegant. Ripe red-fleshed cherries and dark ripe plums, spice and bell peppers are mixed with summer flowers. Dried herbs such as jasmine & lavender linger on and on; the finish has excellent intensity. Let it sit in a decanter and a continuous stream of characters will evolve.

2006 was an excellent vintage for this wine. Late ripening varieties such as Grenache and Mourvèdre are dominated with intense fresh fruit characters and great length of flavour. This with the fine firmness of the finish and its savoury herbal flowery iodine notes characteristic of Mourvèdre suggest to us that extended ageing is quite possible in appropriate conditions. With time the wine will become more integrated to produce a rich, complex wine flavoured with spices, violets and dark chocolate with edges of black olive, ginger and dried herbs balanced with fine piquant tannins and acidity.
