Full-bodied and richly layered and smooth with lots of fleshy black fruit and some smoke on the finish. Awesome party wine. Previous vintages of this wine have been awarded the Gold Medal at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. This robust red is primarily made from the enticing Grenache grape. It features a long, spice inflected finish.

Food pairings: crown rib roast, beef stew, roasted leg of lamb, burgers with blue cheese, meaty pasta, pizza.

This wine is just a real treat to drink, loaded with ripe cherry, cassis, briars and fresh herbs. There’s smoke and hung meat hanging on the finish. 91 Points.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Offers a fragrant nose with raspberries and cassis, followed by a very fruity palate with dark berries, herbs and a touch of smoke. XD, full-bodied with elegant finish. Enjoy with duck or lamb.
