|Hans Johnsen rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of fruit and leather (and maybe fruit leather) and cigars (plus the box they came in), and some nice spicy notes as well. The opening sip is a bit raw on the tannins, especially if you're impatient like me and drink it before it breathes enough (should have used my Vinturi). After that first note though you are rewarded with a complex flavour profile that matches the nose and bumps up the fruit with some dried cherry. Works very well with food. I matched it with a roast beef with dijon crust and green peppercorn cream cause, which worked quite well, but I think this would go very well with a wide range of food.
Buy a bottle for a good friend (that's how I got mine)!
