Tandem Ars Macula Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2004
A Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Merlot from Navarra in Spain rich with blackcurrant pastille, cedary oak, liquorice, red plum and cinnamon. Mint slice joins the party on your palate and exotic spice pervades the aromas and warms the palate.
The higher alcohol gives the whole experience a lift. Ripe and chewy, it is a wine that will bring the best out of a lamb tagine. I would drink it now but you could keep it in the cellar for just another couple of years if you wished.
