Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The 2008/09 Prophetess serves as an anthology of sensory travels. With scents of black olive, cranberry sauce, myrrh, cherries jubilee, cinammon stick, eucalyptus and lilac, there are also traces of freshly spent shotgun shell and grilled lamb. Par-baked brownie, sassafras cola, sweet pipe tobacco and blueberry coulis combine on the palate, and finish with spices of savory pancetta and instant coffee.
