Wine tasting notes

A beguiling nose of rich plums, dark berries and chocolate entwined with a medley of baking spices. The velvety full-bodied palate reveals plump blue and black fruits wrapped in cocoa. A supple and complex wine underpinned by a subtle savouriness on the prolonged finish.

Food matching

Will pair perfectly with red meat, poultry, grilled fish, cheeses and mediterranean cuisine.

Mid ruby. While there is still plenty of dark-red fruit on the nose and a rocky/peppery quality, there's the early signs of some tertiary aromas here – gently smoky and savoury, almost a touch meaty. But the smoky/mineral note becomes more obvious with air. On the palate, some oak sweetness that I had not noticed on the nose, but it is subtle, rounding out the gentle but still present tannins. Beautifully long, dry finish. Has a lightness of touch even with 14% alcohol. There's a hint of black-olive savour on the finish. I think this would be a versatile food wine because the tannins are supple but sufficient to structure the wine for the table. I tasted this after it has had 30 minutes in the fridge (on a hot day in London) and it was just right. (JH)
