Avontuur Baccarat 2004

Ripe plums with generous choc/mint, fynbos, tea and pine needle aromas and a full-bodied mouth feel with prominent blackberries on the palate. Lots of ripe rich tannins and a long finish results in a powerful wine.

Red meat, hearty roasts, venison, spicy cold meats like salami, proscuitta and chorizo.
