This wine is dark ruby garnet with a purple hue. Aromas are definitive of the Coal River Valley with black cherries and Doris plum skin. Very bright, lifted and clear with a hint of dark spices from the high quality French oak. The palate continues with these fruit characters, framed by the Coal River Valley silky tannins. Natural acidity gives a liveliness to the dark fruits and refreshes the long lingering finish. Enjoy now, alternatively those with patience will see an increase in savoury complexity and forest floor notes with six to nine years of cellaring.
