On the first sip of this bold red, it seemed we were looking at a very peppery, tannin laden wine but this was very deceiving, as sip after sip it grew on the palate to an excellent wine full of berries, a little oak and almost coffee flavours.
The nose was of oak and mint and it had a good clean finish. The wine accompanied a meal of ossobuco and there was no doubt that the strong flavours of the meal brought out the best in this wine.
The more the meal progressed the more the complexity of the wine became apparent.
However, this wine seems to be pretty near its peak and I would not leave it too much longer to open these bottles if you have any cellared.
Even my mother in law liked this wine, which was just as well as she made the ossobuco! I would look for this label again.
