Proper glass is key to enjoying this wine

Description: Medium ruby to garnet in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features some sandalwood, pomegranate, blueberry, red currants, oregano and tobacco leaf. Medium body with medium+ tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: Some heat from the 14% alcohol on the finish and a little watery

Interesting Point: Using the smaller Tempranillo wine glass smooths out the tannins versus the larger Cabernet Sauvignon glass

Drink now on its own or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Hot & Smoky Vindaloo with Pork Belly.

Tasted: 1 Oct 2015

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