Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2014


SKU 00158


This is by far the best Pepper Pot we have tried to date. Syrah makes up 80% of the blend with Tannat, Mourvedre and Grenache filling in the remainder, respectively. Fuller bodied, this has an engaging smooth and supple texture with a core of juicy dark red berry fruit flavors accentuated with spice and pepper notes. This plays a perfect balance between the vibrant fruit flavors and savory notes with ripe, perfectly integrated tannins bringing this to an impressive finish. Showing well as we speak this should bring a lot of pleasure over the next couple of years. This represents excellent value.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 The Pepper Pot, a blend of Syrah, Tannat, Merlot and Grenache, has a light boysenberry jam-scented bouquet that feels simple but clean. The palate is rounded in the mouth with a touch of white pepper on the entry, a dash of dark chocolate from the oak
