    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a deep and intense ruby red color. The nose reveals lots of red berries and sweet black cherries, complemented by sweet vanilla and chocolate oak background. The smooth ripe, round tannins make this wine easy to drink while still retaining a full body. The balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by a lingering sweetness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good full medium red. Cassis, pepper, fresh herbs and graphite on the nose. Suave and silky but not at all overly sweet, showing a medicinal reserve to the flavors of plum, currant, licorice and mint. A laid-back wine with a rather light touch, in an Old World style. Finishes with dusty tannins. This needs time in bottle to expand.

    Aromas of black currant, violet and pepper start this stylish Cabernet and Petit Verdot red from Warwick. On the palate, smooth, round and full-bodied flavors of vanilla, black cherry and cassis are complex but easy drinking. A delicious, chewy spice finish ends the sip. Pair with hearty cuisine like steaks, stews and roasted lamb.
