A classic, well balanced thinly layered wine with brooding garnet of sweet red and black hedgerow fruit combined with stewed apples and cranberry. Hints of spice with cigar box aromas. Tannins are re-assuring with a cedar plum finish.

Compliments any hearty meat dish like oxtail, cog a vin, spicy foods and pulled pork. It plays well with spicy undertones but is more suitable for neutral dishes like bouillabaisse and a tom yum soup.
