Red purple medium weight. Brown on the rim as an indication of maturity. Plum and Tar with Christmas pudding with a woody spice background. Fruit sweetness up front with a light mid palate, finishing long and savoury, silky tannin. Oak frames the palate adding structure. Rhone blends are versatile performers in the food matching stakes making them a good choice if you are invited to dinner.
