Chateau des Cres Ricards Oenothera 2018

 

A tidy drink. Some density here. Lots to cuddle up to.

A blend of Syrah and Grenache (70/30), it tries to sweet talk you but there's a serious side about it. Seeing a mix of new, second and third use French oak, charred meat, mulberries, dark cherries and black plums step forward with an unmissable dusting of black pepper at the heartbeat pounding away. Drying to finish, there's some mouth warmth too. All up, it's a good'un. 

Drink to five years.
