Deep crimson with violet hues. Intense aromas of red and blue fruits, ripe plums and morello cherries are lifted by notes of exotic florals and stone-fruits, with mocha and bitter chocolate nuances. The palate shows rich, lush and juicy wild berry and satsuma plum flavours, with a hint of anise and kirsch; velvety, fine-grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish.

"Vivid purple-crimson; fragrant, almost flowery bouquet, Schillings Block diagonally opposite Hill of Grace; supple red cherry/plum; very fine tannins."
