It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Notes of black pepper, spice and herbs along with earthy black fruit. A treak of minerality runs through this red. A good wine, but I found it a bit dull/plodding. I wonder if this isn't just a bit young at the moment as the tannin seems to dominate the finish. I should think that this will show better with another 18 months in bottle. Tasted May 2016.
