Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines | 2015 ...
The Bordeaux Rouge appears garnet red with ripe red fruit and underlying toasted dried black fruit on the nose. The palate opens medium full of warm blue fruit and dried plum and cherry, hints of oak and soft, finishing long with lasting black and red fruits. An excellent red that will age well and should be allowed to open. Best served lamb and tender duck.
