JAN Red 2018

Complex nose of blackberry, cranberry and dark cherries with savoury herbs and peppery spice. The palate impresses with ample dark fruit and subtle tannins that are underpinned with elegant oak use that adds to the structure of the wine.

A hearty stew with root vegetables or a roasted leg of venison served with caramelized onions and a dark cherry sauce.

The different components were aged for 12 months before blending.
