This is a wine that will show its best next to a slow-cooked roast. Red fruit and tobacco leaf waft up from the glass. A sip brings dusty red fruit, tobacco leaf, tomato, with a closing touch of vanilla. Tart rhubarb lingers. Tannins are a bit muscular, acidity lively. Drink with pot roast. Recommended. 88 points.
