Dense purple in colour, the nose is a cornucopia of blackcurrant, plum and cherry aromas. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with cedary, black fruit flavours with notes of smoked meat and dark chocolate. This wine cries out for pepper steak.
A great price for this wine going on ten years old. Straw colour with a nose of honey, lime and warm hay; light-bodied, sweetish grapefruit and lime flavours with great length ending on a note of tarragon. Drink soon.
This toasty, nutty brown ale begs to be sipped with sizzling pork and beef hot off the barbeque. The English brown ale’s clean, crisp body and easy drinkability will cleanse the palate after each rich bite, while its nutty flavours will sync up with the caramelized notes of your carefully ‘cued meats.
Pale straw colour with peach, sweet apple, pear, mineral, vanilla, spice and a hint of nuttiness. There is 14% alcohol, smooth texture and excellent length. Nice balance. No need to cellar as it is ready to drink.
This blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 28% Merlot serves us cassis, raspberry, plum, smoky tobacco, sweet herbs and violets. There is still some youthful astringency, so hold on until the end of 2013 and then drink until 2017.
From the commune of Serralunga d’Alba comes this full-bodied Nebbiolo with an intense nose of sweet cherry, flowers, plum, raspberry, vanilla and spice. Concentrated; there is great length and structure which will allow a long life.
