'This is of deep ruby red colour with some extraction in its tears. The nose is packed with exotic aromas of fresh black plum, cassis, sandalwood and perfume, still with a touch of creamy vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with dark cherry and berry fruit flavours followed by smooth and round tanns fleshed out with juicy fruit. Savoury meaty flavours linger on - This will work with any slow-cooked or BBQ-ed flavours.'Anja Breit, Philglas & Swiggot
