88 Points – Wine Enthusiast, 2014
COLOUR: Deep burgundy.
NOSE: Aromas of Tahitian Vanilla, flambéed cherries and toasted cedar.
PALATE: Bold ripe tannins showoff the big, rich mouthfeel of this wine before the fruit and oak sing in harmony on the back of the palate. Chocolate-dipped strawberry notes start the tasty concert with hints of cinnamon, caramel and rich toasted French oak.
FINISH: Notes of complex dried cherry, black raspberry and dark mocha.
COMMENTS: This wine pairs wonderfully with diverse, and deeply flavourful, foods such as grilled carne asada tacos, braised lamb shank or polenta cakes smothered with wild mushrooms sautéed in Marsala and cream.
