More savoury lift, slight green leafiness, dark cherry. Savoury, cherry, greens off through mid palate, drying tannins. Food : makes the tannins more drying before covering up.

Interesting variety that shows violets combined with berry fruit and a palate with just the right level of tannin that matches beautifully with the food, seemingly a little fuller and longer.

Deep plum. Dark fruit and pine needle aromas. Broad, fleshy palate, plum-jam and orange marmalade flavours. Supple tannins, low acidity. Very dry finish. Food: quite good with the dish, which brings out some meaty flavours in the wine.

A lovely herb and spice nose with a slight savoury flavour on the palate. Subtle fruit and balanced tannins on the finish of the palate. A great match as the flank dish and the wine have similar flavours.

Deep dark red. Dark berries and cherry on nose. Full, dry, ripe concentrated dark fruit, firm tannins, juicy mid-palate. Dry ripe oaky creamy finish. Long. Very little mutual impact in the pairing.

dark crimson colour. Complex nose with aromas of earth, stewed fruit and black cherry. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and a long tannic finish. Food certainly brings those assertive tannins into balance
