The Oddbins Take

This red wine has the musician Tom Waits written all over it. Apparently, some of his instruments enjoy a nice claret (See above to the musical choice bit) so a magnum size would be perfect. This is a brooding Bordeaux drenched in black currant, blueberry flavours, fine-grained tannins and a brush of tobacco. Intense, expressive and offset by a gentle elegance- just like Mr. Wait's words. This wine's grapes are grown in the gravelly soils of Pessac-Léognan. Otherwise knowns as 'Graves'. Which again suits Tom's deep, gritty sonorous voice... or sometimes his song's subject matter. If Wait's isn't present to entertain, we'd recommend sampling this red, listening to Rain Dogs or Bone Machine and getting creatively cognitive with friends (trying hard not to use the word 'arty').
