The nose won’t please a lot, but the taste will
Description: Deep ruby to purple in colour with a medium intense nose. The wine shows smoked spiced oak, bitter cherry, bramble fruit, licorice, umami and Portobello mushrooms. Medium body with low but dry tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Note: My mom really liked it (Insert shocked face)
Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or and pair it with grilled lamb chops.
