Allen Meadows’ Burghound
A more layered if still somewhat fruity nose combines notes of herbal tea, forest floor, red currant and soft wood influence. The mouthfeel of the barely middle weight flavors is finer if not necessarily more concentrated, all wrapped in a mildly austere and tender finish. This too should drink well early. 87 Points, January 2020
A great partner of guinea fowl, chicken, duck, rack of lamb or a simple steak (no heavy sauces. Also good partner with cheeses (not pungent)
