It received the same upbringing as the two Foreshadow wines. It displays an enticing bouquet of cigar box earth notes spice box black cherry and black raspberry. Plush on the palate with refined tannins it has plenty of tasty red fruit impeccable balance and a pure fruit-filled finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from now to 2021.

Ruby purple core with a crimson rim. The nose offers vibrant aromas of toast candied fruit strawberries spice and flowers while the palate is smooth and lush with loads of black fruit cherry and cocoa.
