Tasting Notes

Rich, complex nose of toast, spice, cassis, blackberry, eucalyptus and tea leaves. On the palate, a full-bodied wine with a firm tannin structure, pepper spice, dark fruit and a touch of coffee. Best served with steak, rack of lamb infused with rosemary, oxtail, grilled black mushrooms, or guinea fowl casserole.
