Ducks in a Row Straight Up Mataro 2010

"Straight up now tell me do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh..."

I sometimes struggle to recall what I did last week, yet can recall inane lyrics to 80s pop songs with ease...go figure.

Christmas cake, damp and most, flecked with a little spice. Heady, inviting - comforting, a bonus as the night's draw in.

Smooth and silken, juicy, kirsch and plum, a little dark chocolate in the mix too. Fine tannin adds volume, a little width and contributes to a finish of moderate length, a length driven by a combination of that tannin backed up with that inherent juiciness. 91 - Good
