- RobertR - Deep dark Bordeaux Red.
(Posted on 2/12/2015)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.
