Quick Overview

Tasting Notes: - Decanter Score 19.5/20

This great wine which is almost as black as printer’s ink has an overwhelming nose of black fruit with a roasted touch; it is rich, complex and juicy and impresses by its harmony between the large, but supple texture, the fine tannins and the intense and pleasant flavours.

Will age well into 8 to 15 years.

This has a nose of black fruit with a roasted touch; it is rich, complex and juicy and impresses by its harmony between the large, but supple texture, the fine tannins and the intense and pleasant flavours.
Goes excellent with grilled steaks, veal, lamb, teppan, yakiniku and spicy foods.
