Big chocolate and coconut husk comes out of the glass followed by a load of jam and a handful of dry earth thrown in. The palate has a fresh start but then the thick, sticky tannin, bold fruit and sweet liquorice hits, followed by aniseed and cinnamon. A cracking, balls to the wall Zin with big fruit, big booze and big power. Just needs a steak.
Peter's Score: 90pts
Fresh, fruity and supple, this wine is an easy every day drinker from a great Rhone producer. Contains Sulphites
Dehydrated raspberries and strawberries with some lovely chorizo like spice and a bit of gentle alcohol warmth. It is just a really tasty, summery wine.
Dark fruit, leather and liquorice with a balanced cherry and spice palate and a hint of green on the finish. Contains Sulphites
A fabulous wine from the Dao region of Portugal, erupting in fresh berry fruit, a silky chocolatey tannin and just a touch of liquorice. Contains Sulphites
