TERRA TANGRA GRAND RESERVE 2013
95/100 – Bob Campbell MW
“A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Intense, bold red with Christmas cake-like dried fruit and nut flavours together with wood smoke, leather, cigar box. A formidable red with a powerful tannic backbone. Should age well. Slightly rustic. Drink: 2018 to 2025.” – Bob Campbell MW
Tasting Note: Aromas of blackberries are mingled with the wild cherry as the garnet-tinged wine is swirled in the glass. On the palate, the bright acidity of the Cabernet is joined by dusty tannins from Merlot and overlaid with red fruit notes and suppleness from the Syrah. This harmonious trio of textures is combined with fruit notes of currant, druid blueberry and black currant, together with wild herbs and hints of truffles. Bold and yet elegant, showy and yet reserved, this wine blends together the intensity of the dark fruits and the elegance of red fruits. Aged 16 months in new French oak barrels.
