Very drying, grubby sweet. Unpleasant. With food, it gets very drying and tannic and the grubbiness persists. No good.

Bouquet of ripe blackberry and cedar. Very big and powerful, very rich and intensely concentrated with lashings of blackberry and cedar. When paired with the beef ribs the wine?s plentiful cedary oak was brought to the fore.

Minty and fresh fruited. Lifted nose. Very firm palate. Somewhat enhanced with the dish. Savoury flavours linger

Brooding savoury simple red fruit aromas. The palate is well structured, rounded but lacks balance. The pairing works ok. The mole lifted the oak in the wine.

Big, structured wine, meaty tannins, ripe dark black pepper fruit, long and rich on the palate

Magenta. Plum, menthol and spice. Ripe berries, plums skin, minty, warming, palate. Quite a silky outcome.

Big looking wine. Dense. Terrific aroma. Tar, coffee, winertgreen, vanilla, cedar, cigar box, Xmas pudding. Palate is powerful, direct and compelling. Terrific concentration and layers. Excellent wine. With food ? complete package. Leaves impression of purity and balance. Super impressive fruit concentration.
