Buckboard Durif 2009 is deep inky black in colour. Aromatics jump from the glass with flavours of chocolate, cinnamon and clove spice, dark plum, licorice and vanilla. The palate is equally as dark and black as the colour – big, rich, very full-bodied and intense. Black fruits and dark chocolate dominate the palate which is balanced with strong but integrated tannins and subtle barrel fermentation characters. This is an extremely generous and powerful wine with solid concentration and a very long finish. Buckboard is a compelling and seductive Barossa Durif that can be enjoyed now or over the next decade.
