The wine has a complex nose with overtones of black and white pepper, pomegranate, cigar box, cloves and spice. On the palate there are vibrant red fruit, blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours, underpinned by well integrated oak with a long spicy finish. This wine shows a good structure and will develop for years to come.

Enjoy with powerful and spicy red meat dishes including venison. Strongly flavoured, harder cheeses pair well with this wine.
