Wow! Thank you Kermit Lynch for the recommendation! Awesome value @ £34.

PnP. Lovely dark red color. Nose has meat, earth, and dark fruit on it. Palate is balanced between raspberry and smoke. Wine has great depth but also wonderful texture. I can’t find anything wrong with this! Excellent producer!

I’ll be buying more!
