69% Syrah, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Tintilla de Rota
Figs, blackcurrants, coffee and orange all intertwines in this complex nose which are reflected in the palate. This is smooth, ripe red fruit and the plush tannins are richly sweet with hints of aniseed, with new leather, this is uniquely seductive wine.
Match with game, slow cooked mexican beef, braised rabbit pappardelle, mushroom red wine risotto, brie de meux and dried currants and amazingly chocolate desserts. Also fantastic on its own.
"Big, hearty, complex and savoury red with an initial sweetness from ripe fruit and high alcohol (15%) that is balanced by firm, ripe tannins to give a lengthy, drying finish. Serious food wine that offers great value at this price."
