Let’s have a look at this fine wine. It shows excellent concentration which deep red colour right to the rim. A sure sign of quality. Nose whaffs its complexity (another sign of quality). Black cherries, plums, toasty oak, and some spice. A wonderful, complex taste that mirrors the nose. While the wine is dry there is a hint of sweetness that greets the palate in a pleasant way. Fruit ripeness that screams Essex County. Balance with good acidity, and tannins that are well integrated, silky smooth and refined.

No need to cellar this wine, it is ready to drink right now and will be a wonderful companion with a roast or next summer with a BBQ’ed steak.
