The 2010 Pillar Box Red has Brooding, blackberry fruit and dried mint aromas intermingle with dark chocolate, licorice spice, hints of pepper and cedary oak on the nose. The palate exhibits flavors of fresh black and blueberry fruit, toasted dark spice and hints of spearmint. A seamless wine; displaying balance and a fine, long tannin structure.
