Remarkable, restrained, smoky nose, light texture, low 12,5% vol. I was surprised and frankly seduced by this wine. First I approached with caution (which I think everyone does with Chinese wine TBH) but the gentleness of this wine won me over. Glad to see honest winemaking from a very unusual place, where more of the trophy-wine-approach would be expected.

This was worse than my low expectation of Chinese wine. Actually the nose was quite decent with cherry, cigarette, cedar, and incense., but there is nothing to speak of on the palate or finish other than very high acidity. Would not pay $10 for this.

The wine is clear and bright with a deep ruby colour.

The nose is clean and developing, showing medium(+) intensity aromas of ripe black fruit (black currant, blackberry, dark plums), herbaceous (green bell pepper, tomato) and hints of oak (cedar, clove).

It is dry in the mouth with a medium(+) acidity. It has firm fine-grained tannins and a well integrated medium alcohol. It has a medium(+) body and medium(+) intensity flavours. The finish is medium(+).

It is a very good quality wine. The finish is persistent and it has a decent amount of fruit concentration well-balanced by the tannins and the acidity. On the other hand it could be more complex in the nose, and the unripe notes are more prominent than I would like.
