It appears deep ruby with good legss. On the nose it's very expressing with charcoals and smoky and briny notes dancing together with small red/black fruits, ripe plums, white flowers(?), white pepper and some herbal hints. On the palate is dry, with medium tannins, med+ acidity, medium+ alcohol, med+ body, nice concentration of flavours on the velvety and balanced lively mid palate. Good length, although could be longer.
Very good to Outstanding quality. It can be approachable now but will develop for few years and keep most likely for 10+.  100% Shiraz, Constantia, South Africa.
