The nose is exceptionally intense and complex with red berry fruit juxtaposed against a dark, brooding fruit compote and Swartland violets. The nose exudes aromas of raspberry, mulberry, blackberry, damson, dark chocolate, and licorice with whiffs of cloves, nutmeg, and orange rind. The wine has a soft, smooth entry, a rich mid-palate and the abundance of red and blackberry fruit on the nose follows through with balanced acidity and svelte cocoa powdery tannins.
