Natalie's Score: 89/100

Dark brooding fleshy fruit such as cassis and blackberries. Great structure with a pleasantly bitter finish that refreshes. Decant for 1-2 hours first. Full-bodied.

Speck Family Reserve Cabernet Merlot food pairings: braised lamb shanks with rosemary and roasted garlic accents, good quality chocolate.
