Examined as part of a portfolio tasting, the 2008 Stonehorse SGM acquits itself well. Dark ruby in colour, the wine...

Inky blood ruby in colour with medium intense nose.

Description: Very Zin like character in both flavour & power. Notes of plums, raisins, mocha, dark chocolate, blueberry, black cherry, blackberry, sweet peppers, Christmas cake, figs, cinnamon & nutmeg. This wine is full body with low tannins, medium acidity & long length.

Negatives: 16% alcohol! That's getting to close Port.

Interesting Things: Good wine to give those who don't like tannins or austere red wines & like it a little sweeter. Nice on a cold winter day.

Drink now as a meal of its own or pair it with T-bone steak. This can age for another 3 years.

Tasted: 3 Dec 11

Tasted April 2012. A big juicy red with loads sweet overripe dark fruit flavours that linger nicely for a good while. The 16% alcohol is noticeable but not overbearing in anyway. A heavy hitter that goes down much easier than expected.
