APPEARANCE: Deep garnet-red core, little evidence of ageing on rim
AROMAS: Heady blend of blackberry, plum, mixed spices and oak all apparent on nose
TASTE: Huge concentration of red berry fruit with touch of caramel on long, fresh finish. Background hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Tannins and oak in evidence; wine shows great structure. Powerful, with relatively high alcohol level. Made only in the best vintages – just 5600 bottles produced in 2016!
FOOD PAIRING: Decanting strongly recommended; then serve with roast beef or lamb
OVERALL: At 5 yrs. old relatively young and still maturing, this is a serious and very high quality ‘gastronomic’ wine
