Deep, quite youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is spotlessly clean, fresh and bright, showing classy oak and properly ripe fruit. The wine is concentrated, full-bodied and powerful, with density, great structure and superbly ripe fruit flavours. A majestic wine. It's a baby, and all it needs is a bit more time.

Wow. This is polished and perfect. Blackberry, tobacco, black olive, mocha, pencil and dried herb. Medium to full-bodied, graphite/mineral thing here, with depth and density, an elegant succulence, ripe and supple tannin pushing through, a raspberry and floral mouth-perfume, length and precision. A stand out.

This is really seductive on the nose and already gives an impression of plushness with regal, violet-like florals, plums and mulberries in abundance and all nicely ripe. Additional notes of cedary oak and freshly tilled earth. The palate is full and fleshy and the tannins compose nicely as it builds. Cabernet takes the lead through the long, impressive finish. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Long aging potential.

A blend of merlot (58%), cabernet franc (23%) and cabernet sauvignon (19%). Plump, fleshy but structured wine, with vibrant acidity and tannins balancing fruit and alcohol sweetness. A weighty, textural wine with plum, subtle floral, liquorice, wood smoke and anise flavours.
