Warm and plummy aromas mingle with iron, cassis and blackberry. The palate is dark fruited, smooth and dense with plum, cedar and spice. Fine, seamless tannins and lingering savoury notes.
Selected crops of fruit were harvested, then fermented in small open vats and hand plunged. After an extended maceration period the new wines were drained to French oak casks (35% new), to mature. The wine spent a total of 15 months in oak.
Ideal with roasted red meats. It makes a good partner for a whole fillet beef, roasted rare. Also perfect with a tasty winter casseroled stew.
