Sanson Bird Dog Red 2006 Lot #2 Review

Sun 24, Nov. 13
0 Reviews
0 Reviews
0 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
A medium ruby colour with a youthful purple hue. Smoky aromas of wild bramble and elderberry with hints of coffee accenting the dense fruity core. The palate displays medium, approachable body and structure with good acidity and an evident, yet not overpowering tannic grip. The core remains rich and wild berry that simply goes on and on through the finish. Very versatile. Serve with wild game, hearty stew or lamb.
