4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The Elephant in the Room wines are proudly large in scale and expansive in flavour. Elephant in the Room was created to give consumers exactly what they want – full bodied and mouth-filling wines that deliver maximum pleasure and they deliver on that promise. This is sensational buying. Supple generous wine that totally over delivers in this price bracket.
Sam Kim writes "It's fabulously ripe and fragrant, showing mulberry, dark cherry, vanilla, toasted spice and hazelnut characters on the nose. The palate offers excellent fruit power backed by silky texture and supple tannins, making it very approachable and drinkable."
The winery writes "Dark purple colour with lifted notes of red berry and blackcurrants framed by violet overtones and subtle cedarwood spice. The palate is dense and plush with flavours of blood plum, blueberry and spice with a supple, slippery mouthfeel framed by subtle oak toast and fine tannins. A generous wine, packed full of flavour that is ready to drink now or will cellar for up to 10 years."
Aromatic, spicy with a good balance, slightly tannic at the end. Good price
Easy drinking & delicious for little $$$ - just my kind of wine
