Tasting notes

This wine is a gorgeous balance of power and elegance. Big, juicy fruit flavors dominate this wine; fig, blueberries, blackberries, flattered by delicious notes of dark chocolate. Slight hints of violet coming through from the Syrah and little spiciness on the finish

Food pairing

A wonderfully complex wine like this one deserves a slow cooked meal Something classic like a baked leg of lamb and root vegetables served with a red wine jus, or something a little more funky, like a North African inspired, lamb and apricot cous cous or a slow cooked Indian beef curry. The lovely spicy notes at the end of the palate make it a great wine to accompany these rich, fragrant dishes
