APPEARANCE: Very deep garnet red
AROMAS: Pronounced red berry fruit with some oakiness and traces of coconut, nutmeg and cinnamon
TASTE: Elegant blend of concentrated ripe red fruits showing oak, vanilla and spicy notes. Full bodied; tannins have softened over time, so wine feels well rounded.
FOOD PAIRING: Particularly suited to venison and other well flavoured red meat dishes
OVERALL: Bold, rich and concentrated with excellent ageing potential
£ 19.00 / bottle ( £ 114.00 / case x 6 )
NAME: FAUSTO TANNAT 2010
APPEARANCE: Originally a deep purple-black colour but now slightly lighter with age

TASTE: Richly concentrated black fruits overlaying spice and coffee flavours. Medium- to heavy bodied but supple nonetheless, with noticeably well rounded tannins.
FOOD PAIRING: Spicy or very well seasoned red meat dishes, especially beef or venison
OVERALL: Delicious! A very approachable example of this relatively unknown French grape variety

If you are looking for unusual wines, this Brazilian red blend is one to try. It has a deep ruby colour with violet reflections. Floral aromas of violets, geranium and jasmine; intensely aromatic with notes of blackberry, plum and blueberry. Hints too of cassis, chocolate and pepper. Excellent mouth weight, finely balanced with mature tannins, shows good length. No oak used.
