Nose

The nose expresses a lovely combination of red and black fruits, with subtle integrated toasty oak notes that add layers of complexity to the aromatic profile.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is refined, well balanced and structured. There is nice fruit intensity that compliments the soft tannin level that frames the finish. PATEL 2010 Red Wine is made to be approachable in its youth we suggest decanting for maximum expression, cellaring the wine a few years is recommended.

Bottling

Bottled July 2012.
