Intensely ripe, liqueur-like blackberry nose, sweet and concentrated with abundant tannin, lots of richness on the palate and a long finish. Very oaky. With the dish, it retains some elegance though the tannins are a bit on the drying oaky side

Opens with fragrant dark plum and cedar. Rich, plush and full bodied with ample black fruit and sweet ripe tannins. The ripe black plum and blackberry fruit of the wine was accentuated by the pairing with the beef ribs.

Dark fruit. Dense and concentrated. Very ripe. Some bruised apple. Dark brooding fruit. Tannins exposed by the dish

Deep colour, lifted licorice anise aromas. A richly concentrated, full flavoured wine, rounded mid palate, flavoursome with excellent acidity and length. The pairing works well. The mole promotes the anise flavours in the shiraz. The shiraz tannins pairing well with the delicate beef structure.

A big structured wine with lots dark black fruit, lots of tannins, the wine is in pretty good balance however with fruit and oak integrated

Very deep ruby. Intense dark plum/prune nose with toasty vanilla oak and hints of aniseed. Rich dark fruits, plums and chocolate full bodied. It?s a very masculine and ripe wine with loads of sandy tannin. Good flavour match.

Fine colour ? big oaked up porty nose, plenty of fruit but in an old fashioned oak fruit acid mode. Feels extracted and dried out and prematurely aged. With Food ? over ripe porty flavours predominate. Drying and lasking freshness.
