Melanie scored this wine: 91/100
On the nose, ripe strawberry and cherry notes, violet, decomposing autumn leaves, dark brown sugar, earthy beets, leather, baking spice, cocoa, vanilla bean, menthol and black pepper.
Full bodied on the palate with smooth tannins. Black cherry and plum flavours with dark roasted cocoa notes and wood smoke seeping through. The flavours linger. Pair with barbecued steak.
