Bright. Cherry spice, toast & nutty oak. Similar to nose, greens off, hollow, gritty tannins, moreish. Food : didn?t help with the greenness, tannins still gritty.

Bursting with youthful blackberry fruit, a little creamy oak note and good length that matches in terms of echoing flavours but doesn?t change

Deep cherry-crimson. Dark berry and spice, hints of earth and fresh herbs. Ripe, bright sweet cherry fruit. Tight tannin-acid balance, decent length, fresh acid finish. Food: fruit is a bit youthful at this stage. Will match better with food with a year or two more in the bottle.

A lovely ripe black pepper nose and palate. A hint of savoury and slight gaminess on the finish. Ripe fruit tannins balance out this wine. An excellent match as the sweet fruit and tannins come together nicely.

Med-deep red. Black pepper, redberries on nose. Full, dry, creamy, red-berries, mid-palate persistence. Dry creamy finish. Pairing accentuated dry tannins in the wine, while not doing anything for the beef.

Excellent bright crimson to the eye. Spicy mulberry and oaky aromas on the nose. The palate shows good balance with hints of confected fruit complexing with sensitive oak treatment. An excellent medium bodied style where food gives greater complexity.
