Miles Mossop

Colour: This wine exhibits a dark plum skin color in the centre with a bright ruby rim. Nose: The nose has aromas of fresh Christmas cake, dark cherries, ripe mulberries, blackcurrant and a hint of roasted fennel bulb and mint. These are underscored by notes of cocoa and savory meats with hints of roasted almonds and cedar to compliment this complex nose. Palate: Full, rich, lingering and dry is the best way to describe the palate. It is mouth-filling and packed with flavors of dark cherries, plums, cassis and mulberries. This blend offers ripe fruit flavors with a savory mid-palate of smoked meats, fennel bulb and roasted spices. The tannins are firm and dry which offers an exceptionally long finish. Food Pairing: Serve with smoked meats, venison pie, beef fillet with a red wine sauce or an oxtail stew made in an Osso Bucco style. The wine also pairs well with hard cheeses.

Wine Spectator

A grippy, lightly chewy style, with tar and tobacco holding sway over dark currant, plum sauce and melted licorice snap notes. Tobacco and roasted cedar fill in the finish. Firm, but there's still enough flesh and drive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2011.

Score: 89. —James Molesworth, 2010.
