The colour is ruby red, fine in density showing youthful purple hues. The bouquet is delicate, exhibiting flavours of blueberries and dark cherries, captured by the scents of violets. Nuances of mint and the complex impressions and aromas of the forest revealing the unique cool climate conditions of the 2006 harvest. The palate is soft and savoury presenting a finely structured flavour profile. Distinct flavours of various wild berries are blessing this wine with a sense of being young at heart, vibrant and ready for an adventure.

A nice bright ruby colour with crimson hues, nose of ripe berry fruits, raspberry, chocolate and dusty mulberries. A very well balanced and harmonious palate. Nothing to dislike here! Ripe chewy tannins are in balance with nicely judged acidity, flavours of chocolate,mulberries and forest fruits. Great length of flavour and very delicious now. A wine that will continue to improve over the next 5-7 years with careful cellaring.
