Chunky & nutty oak, toast, bl olive & cherry, slight skinsy. Black olive, savoury, spice, slight hollow, nutty & slight drying tannins. Food : filled out the mid palate, and made the wine more moreish.

Modern clean blackberry fruit with an underlying creamy vanilla oak note that is complimented but not altered by the food.

Deep cherry-plum. Restrained ripe-plum fruit. Ripe, round blackberry fruit, fresh acid and fine long back-palate tannins. Food: good combination ? this is an excellent food wine, the tannins slightly assertive but overall a good match with the richness of the beef, brioche and mayonnaise.

Ripe dark cherries on the nose through to the palate. Hints of spice, savoury and a touch of leather come through on the palate. Great balanced fruit driven tannins complete this wine. Well matched as the texture and flavour of both the flank dish and the wine are in harmony.

Deep dark red. Fresh cool crunchy red fruit and flowers on nose. Med-full, lightly tannic, cherries, red berries, balanced. Dry, slightly lean finish. Fairly neutral food impact on the wine and a touch of elevated sweet beef flavour.

Brilliant deep crimson to the eye. Attractive dark plum with hints of spice and vanilla. The palate shows restrained primary fruit but with flavour persistent long onto the back palate. Food brought the tannins in the wine into nice balance.
