The Colonial Estate Emigre 2010

Product code: 14COL2B2010

Fabulous texture with elegant yet subtle notes of crushed cherries, blackberry, chocolate, pepper and leather. The tannins are almost melted and there is a superb backbone and lift to the wine before a long bright finish. A beautiful bouquet of cassis, blueberries, raspberry, violet, pepper, smoked meats and eucalyptus bring this wine alive!
