Not for me. Did not like this one and won't buy it again.

Very spicy, olivine and blackberry/ raspberry character on nose, like a syrah should be. Simple on palate but harmonious, wonderfully spicy and savoury. Good acidity holds it together. Very good everyday drink!

Medium nose of ripe red berry and pepper. Light mouthfeel juxtaposed with heavy tobacco notes on the palette. Acid is high, but alcohol is higher and a bit intrusive. Low tannin. First sip I really liked but the finish is not making me happy. Hmmmmm. I'll finish this glass then try something else. #dontwaste

Funky from the start but better with air. Super obvious oak on the second taste. White pepper covered by oak.

Not a monster of a wine but rough and spicy. Dirty. A good wine for campfire sausage maybe?

Прикольненько, но алкоголь поддавливает.
