Aroma: The wine has an expressive perfumed nose with oodles of fresh ripe black fruits of the forest aromas along with hints of tobacco and cedar.

 

Palate: The palate is sily, even elegant and long with an unmistakingly dominant varietal flavour of black currants or cassis. As usual there is a roasted red capsicum and a hint of peant. THe tannins on the finish are ripe, long and moorish. The alcohol is lower than many modern day McLaren Vale reds at 13.6% and this allows the wine to have more aromatics, greater freshness and elegance.

 

Cellaring: The XV Barrels would benefit from 10+ years cellaring. Decant before serving.
