He/she who loveth bacon, liketh this wine. What a brilliant label! Don’t let the porky critter put you off just yet: the juice was not half bad. The attractive perfume of blackberries, plum and smoke got us off to a promising start. Purplish gloss hid a medium full-bodied structure beneath, with velvety palate of real spicy black fruits, good acidity and slippery tannin. More polished than heady. Fairly lengthy finish. Tuck in to avoid diminishing marginal utility. — 3
