Vibrant. Savoury, blood plums & spice, toast, slight bagginess. Cherry spice, dusty oak, savoury, slight hollowness, drying tannins. Food : fills out the palate, enhancing the blood plums and cherry, long & moreish.

Medium bodied red with plenty of plum allied to some liquorice like spice that picks up a bit of weight with the addition of food.

Deep cherry-plum. Rich ripe black-cherry and plum aromas. Ripe, fleshy fruit, warm alcohol mid-palate, supple tannins and low acid. Food: quite good with the dish, though a touch more acidity would work well.

A lifted blue berry nose and palate. Firm tannins with lovely clove and savoury finish. Grainy tannins are evident on the finish. The flank dish works well with the wine as it carries beautiful weight and sweetness right through the palate.

Med-deep red. Spicy dark cherry, lightly floral nose. Med-bodied, dry, light tannins, dark red fruit. Slightly dry astringent finish. No mutual influence, if anything emphasized the astringency of the wine.

Rich stewed plum and earthy notes on the nose. The palate is long and complex and has a pleasing but not over-assertive tannic finish. When paired with wine those tannins looked well balanced.
