Beef or Lamb
67% Syrah 31% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Petit Verdot
Enticing aromas of oak spice and violets precede vivid redcurrant and damson flavours, framed by supple tannins, and carried by a fine thread of acidity to a pleasingly long, fresh and complex finish.

Deep, dense purple colour. On the nose summer fruits, cassis, fennel, mint, dark, bitter chocolate and the faintest hint of basil - all wrapped up in serious, warm toasty oak. The palate is all about chunky, chewy, magically integrated tannin. This rewarding mouth-feel is complemented by concentrated flavours of youngberry, cassis, blueberry, wild mint and chocolate. A block-buster Cabernet that will live easily for 20 years from bottling if stored correctly.
Perfect winter warmer. Dark ruby colour, deep spicy aromas of ripe plums & blackberries. Flavours of raisins & dark cherries. Smooth aftertaste, velvet fruit finish that lingers. Can even be served chilled.
