What's not to enjoy here. Big and juicy but with structured tannins. There's a lot going on from fruits, flowers, meats, dark roast and earthy notes. It's really a meal all on its own.

Description: Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: An easy drinking wine featuring light oak, violets, black cherry, plums, pipe tobacco, blackberry, Allspice, white and black pepper, oyster mushrooms and cured meat. Medium body with medium to medium+ tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Point: In Vintages now.
Drink now or over the next 2-3 years on its own or pair it with a lightly pepper dusted pork chop, soothed with balsamic blueberry reduction.
Score: 9/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 18/20

Aromas of dark fruits, mushroom smoked meat, and violet. More dark fruits and violet on the palate, plus blackberry notes. Full-bodied with grippy tannins that are a bit tight. Could use 1-2 years to unwind. Smooth, medium-long finish that's well-balanced. Tasted Feb/2013.
