Brambly and prickly on the nose with medium dark fruit and some earth. Good medium dark fruit in the taste with a little bit of greeness which I liked. Not overly ripe and jammy and that was a big plus. Lots of tannin but they were well integrated and not coarse at all. Good acidity. Nice long finish and only 14.5% alcohol.
Dinner was a small beef tenderloin that was pan roasted. There was a pan sauce made while the meat was resting, wine, shallots, garlic, Dijon mustard, beef stock and butter. Good meal with the wine.
