Reviews of purchase John Duval, Plexus, 2008
Wine of deep crimson.
In a rich, rounded taste of wine felt soft, ripe tannins and bright acidity. Shades of oak added complexity of taste. Aftertaste - long, without a hint of heaviness or overripe.
The bouquet of wine shades of ripe red fruit are perfectly combined with notes of plums, spice and oak.
The wine goes well with meat dishes, game and cheeses.
