Deep ruby red with garnet edges. Dark berries and plums in the nose with some cinnamon, spices and some olives. Medium tannins (6/10) and full bodied. Rich palate with layers of plums, dark spices, caramel and some earthiness. Drink till 2025.

Been saving this for 3 years. Much more integrated! Super dark fruit and some menthol. Love the carnival.

INCREDIBLE wine from down under!!!
Strong but inviting start!! Tannins really keep it in check. Ripe cherry and strong hazelnut dominate the mix. Bravo!!
