pretty robe – black-dark red brightness. Refined notes within a European style red plum, full bouquet, floral wisps, licorice and aniseed, has lift. Attractive palate, has a sweet soak of red fruit, is textured without being OTT, runs very steadily and smoothly. Big and rich wine with a delightful sprinkle of late, cedary tannins. Fine carry of fruit here. 2017-19 Oct 2009 2005 is £14.99 from the The Wine Cru, GB, 0844 560 7702 www.thewinecru.com
