What George says about this wine...

"A rich, refined and complex nose. There is some underlying oak with top notes of intense, sweet raspberries, dark chocolate and spice with a herbal quality. It is full bodied in the mouth. Dense and full with ripe tannin, bright acidity and a long finish.

This wine is perfect for the Chop House Roast Chicken Dinner."

ABV - 13%
