Value, fresh, savoury.
The oops Spicy Splendor is made entirely from an old Bordeaux variety that's been famously embraced and championed by Chile; Carmenere.
Priced with great value in mind it offers notes of dried violets and roses, purple berries, charred cedar, grilled red peppers, peppercorn, chocolate and roasted herbs. The palate is fresh with oodles of tangy red berries, cocoa and toasted spice.
A great weekday dinner red with roasted veggies, hearty stews and soups or grilled meats.
Second review: November 2023
Expect fresh notes of cherry and chocolate, leather and licorice, dried flowers and brown spices. The palate echos the nose. it's fresh and smooth and easy drinking. Expressive berry flavours are layered with coffee chocolate and a hint of bacon fat. A pleasing and affordable weekday red.
