Youthful violet color. Sexy aromas of cherry-vanilla, cola, potpourri and sandalwood, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Deep, seductively sweet dark berry flavors boast liqueur-like richness and are enlivened by juicy acidity. Floral pastille and cracked pepper qualities emerge with air and carry through a long, sappy and impressively focused finish, which features silky tannins and a suave floral character. This gains power in the glass while maintaining admirable balance, focus and mineral-driven clarity.

Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2006 Mount Edelstone has warm blackberry, cinnamon and clove aromas with hints of capsicum, tilled loam and black truffles. Some oak is poking through on the concentrated, full bodied palate with a medium-firm level of grainy, tight-knit tannins and long savory finish.
