Fantastic value! Lovely sour cherries, orange peel, well proportioned tannins, slight earthy note and zesty acidity.

Brilliant garnet-esque ruby. Bright cherry and faint notes of tobacco on the nose and palate. Medium plus acidity and medium tannins. Lengthy finish. Great QPR, though I prefer Riserva.

Not really a big fan of this, so I pawned it off on @David Traynor.

Dry but fruity, so well balanced. Served with pulled pork sandwiches. Ready to buy a few more bottles. 2012 vintage
