Description

A heavy weight boxer of a wine that we certainly recommend it needs it’s time in the corner decanted. Really hefty, fresh and intense quality red from Port grapes. Big black fruit of fat blackberries and cherry, espresso coffee and dark chocolate. The heavy tannins become soft and fruit more expressive after decanting. Certainly one that is worth the wait.
