was looking for a screw-top red to go with my roast chicken Sunday supper (the Beaujolais we were supposed to drink was corked so I didn't want to take any chances!), and this was the first bottle I found. It is lush, plummy, and velvety at this moment in its evolution. Lots of pepper emerges with air, along with additional blue fruit notes. Lovely, layered flavors and a satiny, lingering finish. Can't say I'm sad the Beaujolais was bad now... :)
Deep dark red in the glass , the nose is concentrated with blackberry and peppery notes. The palate is long, complex and shows the potential for aging. Savory plum, understated blueberry and mulberry are most evident on the palate, with oak playing a supporting role. The tannins are fine but firm, providing excellent structure and length on the finish. Review Link - www.winereviewer.com.au (drink by 2020)
