Details

Vibrant purple. Dense core. Initially tell-tale cassis, black olive aromas with a suggestion of sun-dried tomato, beetroot juice and a modicum of mint. Yet beneath, a layer of ‘varietal complication’— dandelion, bayleaf, North-African spices, mustard powder, cumin. The next layer nonchalantly and unhurriedly unfurls to reveal a root-vegetable (earthy, stock/broth) combination of parsnip and celeriac. And finally to complicate (sorry, complex) further— dried rose-petal/tarragon/thyme. Classically apportioned—an acid-tannin tension reinforcing an unmistakable ‘Coonawarra Line’ across the palate. Precision, defined. This tannin-acid duet renders a nervier, added dimension… more than that contributed via the palate’s cranberry, persimmon and pomegranate fruit grip/bite. Also, Moroccan preserved lemon, star anise and smokey paprika (barrel-ferment induced?) elements

serve to further complex a varietal cassis and black olive flavor base. An overtly long, enduring finish. Voluminous. Persistent.
