Had this wine off and on for years, maybe decades and it’s usually a great value but this one (due to vintage perhaps?) fell far short of what I’ve come to expect. Muted aromatics, clunky tannins on the palate and a harsh finish. Wine might have been exposed to temperature or something ...

Impressive, highly drinkable, ripe and juicy blend of equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese (average age of vines is 18 yrs). Macerated with lots of pump-over. MLF in barriques. Aged in oak 3 months.

Deep dark ruby colored, cherry red rim.
Luscious bouquet of black currant jam, ripe plum, strawberry, basil, mallow, lingonberry and smoked wood.
Medium-plus bodied characterful palate with ripe tannins and well-integrated acidity. Blackthorn, black cherry, lingonberry, black currant, hinted by wet peat and licorice.
Finish of fruit character with fresh acidity.
Paired grilled pork escalope perfectly.
An absolute winner in terms of QPR!
