Good but a little one dimensional

Description: Dark purple to ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features oak, cherry, pomegranate, figs, raisins, oregano, sage, graphite and tomato leaves. Medium+ body with high tannin, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: A little hot from the 15% alcohol

Interesting Note: Decanting for an hour. Really like the classy label

Drink now or in the next 10 years on its own or pair it with Rigatoni with Spicy Sausage-Tomato Sauce, Arugula and Parmesan.

Tasted: 27 February 2016

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

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
