About the wine

Balanced, complex and expensive-tasting red
  • Jim's made a smooth, easy drinking red with perfectly ripe dark fruit and an interesting edge of depth and complexity. And he's done it for a steal.
  • His beguiling blend takes a traditional Bordeaux approach (BX = short for Bordeaux) mix of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec – and then he breaks all the rules by adding a healthy splash of Syrah. 
  • Jim says he made this rich, generous wine for flavorful meats like roasted chicken, topped with savory mushrooms and herbs...and our mouths are watering at the very thought.

Best before
Tastes great now, but will age for two years (or more).

Serving advice
For the first six months, open 30 minutes prior to serving, decant or aerate, if possible.

Food match
Roasted/smoked chicken with mushroom risotto.
