This is an unexpectedly big wine from the Clare from the Paulett family. It is big in many ways – densely concentrated plum coloured, plenty of rich chocolate blackberry, spicey cinnamon & earth character backed up smooth tannins & a slightly bitey 15% alcohol just poking it’s nose out to be noticed in the glass that I tasted. A fuller bodied rich style that will be loved by many. I would think that this would be a good wine to have with a New York strap of beef with velvety mushrooms.
