Natalie's Score: 89/100

Brooding on the nose with dark fruit, smoke and dark spices. More black fruit follows on a full-bodied palate with some tannic grip and a pleasantly bitter tarry note. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with hearty meat dishes. Food pairings: barbecued meats and mushrooms, hard cheeses. Best Beef Wine
