This simple wine will please those that like a sweeter style red, but with added substance

Description: Opaque ruby in colour with an intense nose. This complex wine features cedar, blackberry, blueberry, ripe raspberry, kirsch, plum, cinnamon, cloves, dark chocolate, coffee, fennel & liquorice. Full body with medium tannin, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: A little heat from the 14.5% alcohol

Drink now or in the next 5 years, on its own or pair it with Turkish Coffee Rubbed Brisket.

Tasted: 18 June 2016

Score: 9/10, Value: 8.5/10 (Sale Price: 9+/10) Total: 17.5/20
