The 2006 has a dense red colour, tinged with a violet hue. The opulent nose
displays a lifted array of blueberries, black cherries and plums with layers of
dark rich cocoa, pepper and a typical Padthaway mint lift.
The generosity on the palate is juicy and fleshy, with conserve-like ripe berry
fruit with lashings of creaminess. It develops a silky texture with touches of
toast, caramel and spice, building to a highly expressive finish that has power,
persistence but still maintains elegance.
