What we say:
Not for the faint hearted, this wine packs a punch. Certainly full bodied with oozing backed black fruits. This sophisticated red stands out with its quality. It’s one of those wines you taste and instantly think, this is a good wine.
You can sit and enjoy on its own or carefully match with food. Be careful though as this wine could overpower some foods. Stick to meaty dishes with red meat.
