A little lighter in colour than our usual Elevation 393. Medium deep, bright red colour. Also a little more expressive on release than usual on both nose and palate. Bright red berries and cherries, spice and an appealing leafy, fynbos character. Some blueberry and black currant in the background too. Surprisingly well integrated new oak. Bright red fruit, spice and lovely texture on the palate. Rich, but refined berry fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominates at first, followed by the wonderful spice of the Syrah and Cabernet Franc towards the end of the long palate. Showing good development with earthy notes on the nose.
