4.5 STARS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
GOLD MEDAL | San Diego International Wine Competition
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 "Delightfully fruited and perfumed, the bouquet shows blackberry, ripe strawberry, olive and roasted nut aromas, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that's supple and silky. Fruit expressive and immediately appealing."
The winery writes "Deep purple colour with aromatic 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, chocolate, blueberry and spice with a supple, slippery mouthfeel framed by subtle oak toast and fine tannins. A generous wine, packed full of flavour that would pair perfectly with roast lamb."
Aromatic, spicy with a good balance, slightly tannic at the end. Good price
Easy drinking & delicious for little $$$ - just my kind of wine
