2016 Warre's

Aromas of ripe red fruits with notes of balamic and clove. The ripe, textured fruit possesses clarity and purity - not dense and thick but wonderfully expressive, airy and elegant. Superbly balanced, with a lingering finish.

TASTING NOTES

Not quite as deep-coloured as Dow and Graham but almost! Very dark blackish crimson. Strongly aromatic with balsam notes. Smells as though this would be just the job with roast lamb somehow – in the same way as a redcurrant jelly. The acidity seems more marked than its grand stablemates Dow and Graham. Racy and sinewy.
