Tasting notes

Ruby red colour with a hint of garnet at the rim of the glass which denotes the wine is a few years old. Mint, herb, cherry and cassis emerge on the nose after a little time, and carry through onto the palate. Fine, elegant, medium-bodied red with a touch of spicy oak too

Drink dates

Now till Winter 2020
