At last! A wine cracked open for relaxation, and an enjoyable one without qualification! Aromas of black cherry and fresh red peppers, with carefully-matched toasty oak. Deep garnet colour reflected rich and silky dark fruit flavour with subtle tannin and acidity. Survived the “dark chocolate” test too! Very, very drinkable! Nice.
