Meaty earthy, pepper, cooking spices all greet the nose. There is even some struck match and barn-yard. In summary, its complex!. Firm medium-plus bodied wine with supple round tannins producing a textured wine with flavours of mace, nutmeg, vanilla and hits of licorice. A really enjoyable 55/45 blend.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
