Nose

The aromas faithfully express the palate in this dry, well-balanced wine

Palate

The tannins are just starting to soften on this medium-bodied wine, so decanting may still be desired. Expect to find dark berry flavours on the palate, along with Christmas pudding spices and toasted oak notes.
