Dense, savoury red with a chewy texture. A hearty Bordeaux blend - great with rich, slow-cooked meats, particularly lamb and beef. The wine is beginning to gain some savoury, gamy bottle development adding complexity and character. Good value at this price.
Tasted: Jul 2010 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $25 (~USD $22)
