Dark bright ruby in colour. Silky nose with plum aromas, dark cherry, raspberry and subtle glimpses of vanilla bean, clove and nutmeg spice. In the mouth, the same juicy primary fruit and vanilla bean character alongside flavours of mocha and a faint graphite core. The soft tannins ensure balance. Drink to 2028.
Food pairing: loves a chateaubriand and stews (coq au vin!). Try with your best homemade lasagne or pasta.
