Intense ruby, smells like sweet black fruit, vanilla, sweet tobacco. Big tannins, sandpapery, full body. It’s okay. I won’t dump it, but I probably won’t get it again. — 6 months ago
Smells amazing - raspberry sauce, chocolate, pepper, vanilla. Also cherry and cloves. Makes me want to put it in my mouth. Taste is less exciting :( it’s fine, but not as exciting. Kind of one-note, grippy tannins on the sides of my mouth... it’s FINE but doesn’t live up to the nose. — 6 months ago
Pale pink/orange, clear.
Smells of raspberries, sweet strawberries, cranberry cocktail, sweet ripe honeydew melon, hibiscus, faint citrus. Makes my mouth water.
Sweet taste, with bright acidity. Light bodied, berries, berries, berries. Tastes like strawberries and tart cranberry, juicy. Long sweet finish. Happy and sunshine-y.
Well balanced, good acidity. — 7 months ago
Almost orange coloured - deep rosé. Pretty as hell. Smells like tart berries and floral, with some darker fruit. Not very intense when chilled. Pleasant, dry but fruity. Less acidic than I expected.
Decent and reliable, not exciting but approachable and good price. — 6 months ago
Salinity, mineralogy, whiff of citrus and apple. Smells like a beach morning, low intensity but intriguing. On the palate brine and citrus, oily feel, acidity lingers. Dry. Very pleasant.

Translucent ruby in the glass. Fruit on the nose - cherries, red currant, blackberries, clove, floral. Tastes fruity with a touch of spice.
