2006 M KLIPSUN
M 2006 has a fragrant aroma of crushed roses and blackberries with a whiff of espresso. Full and round on the palate it has a rich flavor profile of black currents, Bing cherries and coffee. The satiny texture upfront gives way to rich tannins that carry the flavors to an extended and flavorful finish.
