TASTING NOTES:

This wine is characterised by notes of liquorice, cherry and black fruit, with a touch of exotic spice and a pronounced savouriness to the finish. A big, structured wine with velvety tannins that fills your whole mouth. On the aftertaste different flavours open up and keep guessing on what will follow. Better with red meat or spicy Asian style dishes.
