Bright. Dark cherry & toast, spice lift, sweet oak lift, slight leafiness. Cherry, black berry, slight donut, has flavour with gritty tannins. Food :pronounces the black berry fruit spectrum, and adds to overall flavour definition.

Black pastille fruit with a little chocolate and vanilla in the mix too that is unchanged by the food.

Deep cherry-plum. Earthy/woodsy. Roasted meat/veg. Rich and ripe, fleshy fruit, supple tannins. Food: ok combination

Ripe rich berry aromatics that follow through to the palate. Soft ripe balanced tannins. Lovely silky mid palate. A good match with this dish as the wines balance remains and the flavours are enhanced.

Deep dark red. Oaky creamy ripe red fruit, concentrated dark nose ? light floral notes. Full sweet ripe oaky dark berries, juicy, lightly black pepper, dense persistent mid-palate. Dry ripe finish. Long. Good pairing, no clashes and fairly neutral mutual impact on flavours.

Deep dark crimson. Ripe damson plum and vanilla oak on the nose. Complex palate with lovely primary fruit and well handled oak giving the wine interest and making it a very good food wine.
