This was nice and rich with heavy legs. Paired very well with my seared venison loin. Lots of blackcurrant, sweet coffee, cherry and raspberry. Good tannin that holds on (even after a two and a half hour decant). The wine keeps a good acidity even with its very round and full mouth finish. It needs a rich meat to accompany otherwise it may feel too Shiraz/Ribena to drink on its own.

A great dinner wine for a group. Suited everyone's tastes. Not too heavy, not too sweet.
