Blueberries covered in dark chocolate.
It is a bit short and thin but this makes it easier to enjoy more of!
Monday night quaffer.

2012: takes things to another level after the Parson's Nose. Allure, like the intoxicating scent of a new lover; fine grained - nigh chalky - tannin. Excellent 92

Fragrant blackberry, black currant, blackberry leaf, herb and cedar spice. Juicy, and fruit driven with a savoury thread. Drinking well now with plenty of potential to develop.

strong spicy and vanila taste, not enough complexity, high acidity, lack of balance, not my favorite, but a good value everyday wine.

Commercial type red showing little varietal Cabernet characteristics. Very ripe with grippy tannins. Nothing to write home about.

Oaked. Spicy with intense black fruits and a hint of vanilla. High in acidity and a full bodied wine.
