NV R. L. Buller & Son The Portly Gentleman
Producer: R. L. Buller & Son
Grape Type: Red Blend
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011
(a lightly fortified blend of cabernet sauvignon, grenache, mataro and shiraz; 17% alcohol, which is on the low side for a port-styled wine): Bright ruby. Cherry, gingerbread and mocha on the nose, with a slightly roasted coffee note. Rich and broad, with good weight, pliant dark berry flavors and a hint of burnt orange. Becomes spicier and more brisk with air, finishing with good clarity and cut.
