Dense. Richer, nutty & toasty oak, dark cherry/berry. Cherry & savoury, has good flavour, softish tannins, moreish. Food : extended the palate weight, moreish.

Pristine fresh blackberries and cream with just a subtle spice note that doesn?t alter much with food.

Deep cherry-crimson. Restrained mint/spice and plummy fruit. Ripe blackberry/plum fruit, cedar oak overtones. Older style, high alcohol, dry ripe-tannin finish. Food: very good with the dish ? mature/traditional wine characters complement meat and brioche toast very well.

Lovely ripe primary red fruit on the nose with hints of black pepper and coffee on the palate. Sweet fruit tannins with a lovely savoury finish. An excellent match as similar flavours are in the flank dish as well as the wine, as is the texture.

Deep dark red. Red berries, slightly spicy, fairly restrained nose. Full, tannic, spicy, violets, dark berries, good mid-palate concentration, light cloves and cream oakiness, mid-palate persistence. Long dry ripe fruit on finish. Deepened the darker flavours of the wine, brought out an earthiness in the beef.

Great dark crimson colour. Attractive plum fruits and spicy/peppery/ earthy aromas on the nose. The palate has a good balance of primary fruit with sensitive supporting oak and a long tannic finish.
