Archaeus | Ruggabellus

This is a Syrah-dominated blend showing plenty of sweet rasberry and cherry fruit on the nose, along with black olive tapenade and spice. The palate is fresh and taut. Wonderfully focused throughout, with great concentration and precision. It needs opening up, but will reward your patience.
