Judges Tasting Notes

Opaque with bright, grainy, youthful, purple rim. Very attractive nose packed with ripe, dark berry fruit and some smoky notes. Floral backing with touch of spice. Rich and full in the mouth with hint of white pepper joining the berry fruit. Full, smooth flow and some soft, fruity tannins. Good balance and texture. Some cracked black pepper joins the long, fruit filled finish. Lots of potential over five to eight years.
