Medium ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Need to issue my warning for this wine: “Danger Will Robinson” as you can easily drink 2 bottles without blinking an eye

Positives: This wine features cedar, cherry, plums, red licorice, mesquite, Allspice and thyme. Medium body and tannins with good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: There’s some heat coming from the 13.5% alcohol

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or and pair it with veal sandwich.

Tasted: 26 June 2014
