Tasting and food pairings
The Irancy 2017 is of a lovely purple colour, with aromas of reds fruits and wild strawberries. In the mouth, candied fruits are detected, and the wine's smooth tannins renders it a harmonious wine with some power softened by a vanilla touch at the end.
You can enjoy this wine with starters, charcuterie, red meats, game and cheeses.

The delicious and juicy if lighter weight flavors possess a relatively suave mid-palate mouth feel before culminating in a moderately rustic and mildly warm finale. This won't win any awards for refinement (though Irancy rarely does) but I like the frank delivery. Note that this could easily be enjoyed now or held for 1 to 2 years first. 87/now+

I don't taste this often. Dark cherries and spices with some plum undertones. Dried fruits. Medium body and walnut and dried-mushroom character. Drink now.
