John Oscar

Intense deep red with crimson hues. The wine has an abundance of aromas including wild blackberry, choc mint, vanilla, dark chocolate, satsuma plum, hints of bay leaf spice and a touch of leather. This is a complex wine. The palate shows some chocolate licorice bullet flavours, tight grape tannins combined with fine oak tannins from a combination of French and American oak maturation and great length of fruit flavour. Incredibly well balanced wine with great potential for ageing. Pair with Roast Lamb served with scalloped potatoes and baked vegetables.
