Dried herbs & spice, toasty oak. Dried herbs, spice, red/black cherry, gritty tannins with flavour. Food : enhanced the palate length, dried herbs more obvious, moreish.

Mid weight bramble filled wine with supple tannin that is much the same with the food.

Mid plum-red colour. Clean berry fruit, hints of pepper and spice. Fresh fruit palate, well structured, clean acidity and ripe, fine-grained tannins. Food: good combination, pepper and spice work well with the beef and hollandaise.

Red plum and dark berry fruit on the nose and palate. Medium intensity of savouriness and earthiness. Ripe fruit tannins with well-integrated oak. Well balanced with the flank and brioche dish as the dark berry and plum characters are enhanced and the ripe tannins become sweet and balanced.

Med- deep red. Creamy red berries nose. Med-full dry, lightly tannic, spicy crushed red fruit. Dry ripe creamy finish. Long. Food pairing emphasized depth of the wine, whilst subtly picking up grassy sweetness of the wine.

Attractive crimson red colour. The nose shows spicy plum and mulberry aromas. Pleasant medium bodied wine with excellent balance of fruit weight and exceptional length. Food really showcases the lovely varietal fruit in the wine.
