Category: Red Wine
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Dourthe Freres
Alcohol: 13.5 %
Description: Dark ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
Positives: Although I found the nose better than the taste, in saying that the taste is very good. This wine features cedar, blackberries, ripe tamarinds, leather, pencil shavings, tobacco leaves, mushrooms, mesquite, peppercorns & graphite. Medium body with medium+ tannins, acidity & length.
Interesting Point: Needs to decant for 30-60 min to soften it up.
Drink now or over the next 5 years on it its own but with taste better with high protein foods like steak.
