Fragrant! A good entry Margaux. Gravelly cassis black cherry.

Strong saffron scents overwhelm a passive mouthfeel that has heavy oak, green pepper, and dark fruits. Medium body and tannin. A wine that you must pair with food; perhaps Spanish? Definitely not a sipping wine.

Outdoor dinner at box hill night market. Good music and atmosphere. Dark brooding nose.
