Dark ruby to garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Classic Graves wine that you pay a little more, but it’s worth it.

Positives: This complex wine features cedar, blackcurrants, anise, cassis, dark cherry, graphite, sage, thyme, tobacco leaf, cocoa, espresso and leather. Full body with medium+ tannins, good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: Some heat from the 13.5% alcohol

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with dry aged steak.

Tasted: 27 April 2014

Score: 9+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 18.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4+
