Succulent, savoury, smooth.
Please serve this wine at a temperature slightly cooler than room temperature, it really does benefit, as do most reds, which are being served too warm.
Paprika and toasted spices, wild red berries, shaved dark chocolate and tobacco aromas rest atop charcuterie and wild herbal notes. This vintage has a fresh entry, it shows tangy red fruits, peppery spices, pipe tobacco and bitter chocolate. It's leaner than I recall from previous vintages, a medium+ body with a smooth texture.
Pair: roasted meats, pepper steak or risotto with mushroom jus and fresh savoury herbs.
