APPEARANCE: Deep garnet core, with a lighter, rusty-red towards the rim
AROMAS: A heady mix of ripe brambly hedgerow fruit – damson, plum and maybe prune – with mellow oak in the background
TASTE: Richly concentrated dark fruits, shows hints of smokiness and spice, punctuated by a kick of acidity. Full bodied but not heavy, quite savoury and probably best enjoyed as a food wine
FOOD PAIRING: Goes superbly with lamb, beef, venison, BBQ & smoked meats. Ideally decant.
OVERALL: This is a smooth and supple red blend, with beautifully integrated oak and packed with autumnal fruits; has matured quickly and is drinking well now but has potential for further ageing
The wine was reviewed in March 2020 by leading Glasgow-based wine critic Tom Cannavan. Read his tasting note here: Assinatura
