Earthy aromas and flavours of violet incense, dried leaves, cassis, wet clay, cooking spice and dried herbs. Medium bodied with grippy, maybe slightly green, tannin, this is certainly a wine that calls for protein, but not a bad intro to Bordeaux.

Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

A simple entry level Bordeaux wine.

Positives: Light cedar, blackcurrants, cherry, anise, pencil shavings & spinach. Medium to medium+ body and tannins, with average acidity and length.

Negatives: Slightly green in its finish.

Drink now on its own but it would pair better with food such as hamburgers and meatloaf.

Tasted: 19 May 13

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8.5/10 Total: 17/20
