The 2015 Dead of Night is a dry, full-bodied red wine with a colour of deep ruby with a touch of purple. The nose consists of dark plum, blackberry, leather and cedar. The palate follows the nose with dark cherry and some earthiness. The wine has good structure; it’s bold yet has an elegance and silky tannins which one might not expect to see in a Tannat blend. The wine comes through with a smooth texture, toasty notes (due to the Hungarian barrels used on the Syrah) and a long finish.
