Online Tasting Note for reference:
"Deep, dark, black-ruby core, fading slightly at the rim. Intense 'Bordeaux' fruit on the nose, with light spice and chocolate notes.
The palate has plenty of concentrated fruit and creamy oak but is elegant and has a freshness allied to the 'cool climate' conditions in which the vines grow."
