Why we're drinking this
Here’s a bottle that over-delivers. It’s ripe, complex and full of fruit with a fabulous crushed velvet texture. Hard not to like this wine, which makes it an easy go-to bottle for the busy holiday season.
Noble aromas of warm cassis lead to layered flavours of black forest fruit, red and black plum, toasty wood and a smooth creamy milk chocolate finish. Nice.
