RRP 26

With the benefit of a little bottle age, this is an excellent cabernet and will be long-lived. The colour is still youthfully red-purple; the bouquet suggests blackberry and black olive. The full-bodied palate has a lot of classically firm Clare tannins, which demand protein-rich food. Drink now to 2036. 14.5 per cent alcohol.

Food: Rare roast beef.
