Greeted with vibrant colours of red and black fruit. Offers lovely aromas of black currants complimented by earthiness and spice, sprinkled with wisps of plum. Up-front tannin gives way to a silky-smooth mouth feel filled with layers of dark cassis, tobacco and star anise. Underlying suggestion of dried cranberry and fennel extend on this lengthy, intense finish. Marries beautifully with a range of dishes, from an artisanal cheese platter to red pasta sauce mains.
