Ripe & rich, black berry, savoury notes, toast & some leafiness. Sweet oak up front, has some flesh & weight, gritty tannins with flavour. Food : brings the acidity to the fore, and pronounces the medicinal character.

Dusty spicy savoury notes on the nose mixed with black fruits, and a little firmness on the palate that seems fruitier and more youthful with food.

Deep cherry-crimson. Deep cherry-plum fruit aromas, fresh vanilla oak. Sweet fruit and oak. Drying tannins, low acidity. Food: ok combination.

A slight savoury note on the nose with elegant fruit tannins on the palate. The wine is better with the beef ribs as the tannins are less obvious.

Deep dark red. Creamy, oaky, dark berries, black pepper nose. Med-full, dry, ripe soft tannins, rich red fruit, balanced, floral spicy concentration and mid-palate persistence. Dry, ripe creamy finish. Long. Pairing brought out creaminess of the wine and made the earthy beef flavour more subtle.

Deep crimson colour. Lovely stewed plum aromas on the nose. Very typical varietal palate with rich stewed plums and a delightful savoury note to the back palate. Food accentuates the ripe varietal flavours in the wine.
