A very deep black cherry colour with a light-purple rim. On the nose, nice red berry and black fruit aromas, such as strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants are underpinned by creamy, slightly toasty oak, together with touches of spice and liquorice. Very flavoursome on the palate, fruit-forward, with rounded tannins, good acidity and slight hints of vanilla, smoke and toast. A wine with both individual character and harmonious balance.
Excellent with hearty meals such as red meat, game or duck. Also with strong cheese, pâtés, rice dishes or pasta with sauce.
