Domaine Melody Crozes-Hermitage 2019 (Rhone Valley, France) "...chocolate, graphite, herbs..."
"100% Shiraz. It opens to reveal a touch of rusticity on the nose. Dark spices, chocolate, graphite, dark plums and woody herbs. The palate is muscular, not over the top, it’s dark and chewy but there’s elegance here. Dark plums and spices interwoven with cured meats, dark chocolate and that graphite-like tannin grip makes for excellent structure all the way to the end. Excellent value Crozes."
