One needs food to enjoy this tart, tannic & high alcohol feeling wine
Description: Medium dark ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, blackcurrants, blackberry, pomegranate, unripe tamarinds, eucalyptus, pepper, graphite, tomato leaves, spinach & leather. Medium body with green tannin, good acidity, an average length.
Negatives: Too tart for me and a little too much heat from the 14% listed alcohol. Needs decanting.
Drink now or in the next 3 years and pair it with Pan Seared NY Strip Steak with Garlic Butter Sauce.
