On paper this ought to be a BIG red wine. It is, and it isn’t. The red varietals that combine herein can make monsterish wines. This example is the road less travelled by. The power shelters rather than strides; the fruit flavours play, rather than march; and the wine’s weight glides rather than sinks. This is a serious wine that has a welcoming attitude.
