A consistent favourite of mine, but due to the high acidity it drinks best when paired with food. Has a beautiful nose.
Tasting Note: Medium ruby in colour with high acidity, a medium+ intense nose, integrated tannin & a long length on the finish. Wine features dark cherry, blackberry, loganberry, plum, tamarind, anise, cloves, tomato leaves, & violets on the nose.
Interesting Point: Great deal at the clearance price.
Pairings: Drink now or over the next 3-4 of years and pair it with Greek styles lamb kebabs.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
