The aroma is herbaceous and has tobacco and tea leaf notes. The port adds to some developed aged aromas.
This wine is medium bodied with broad appeal and drinkability.
The initial impression on the front palate is some light fresh cherry flavours blending into cigar box notes.
The addition of the port gives a richness to the mid palate. The blend of tannins and acid on the finish ensure the lasting impression is not overtly sweet. This subtle savoury note makes this a great wine to accompany a meal.
Pair this with a variety of foods. Versatile enough to match rich red meats or a more delicate chicken or poultry dish. Well suited to pasta, drinking with food will show the depth of this wine.
