Kristin scored this wine: 90/100
"Won't you take me to, Funky-town!"
Sweet spicy orange, clementine, apricot preserves- refreshing herbal and minerally finish. Medium plus body, ready for action with some fish, pork or poultry tacos!
Kristin scored this wine: 91/100
"Love me tender, love me sweet!"
Stone fruit, juicy melon, aromatic orange blossom, minerals - full bodied, mouth-coating yet refreshing acidity to follow and cleanse the palate, finishing dry. Pair with pork, poultries (perhaps with peach chutney!) or on it's own in the afternoon sunshine.
Plush, velvety plum, cigar box, vanilla, coffee, cocoa beans, cinnamon, flint minerality - full bodied, soft tannins, warming alcohol. Like a hug for your mouth and soul!

A Powerhouse red!
Red berries, dark fruit, espresso, dark chocolate, hazelnut, plum, tobacco, eucalyptus - explosive full body on the palate with a lingering finish.
Dark chocolate (not too sweet!) or a meaty ragu will do!
Smoky plum, red and black currant, capsicum, tea leaves, coffee, licorice, tobacco leaf on both the nose and palate - solid tannins, full body with balancing acidity, lasting finish.
Roast beef please!

I am polyamorous when it comes to wine. BUT I DO love my "cheap and cheerful" Segura Vidas Cava at the moment :)
Would you like me to help you find a great wine?
