Unremarkable but very serviceable weekday wine. Good fruit but doesn’t have that sense of central coast fruit. The most surprising thing was the low alcohol- 13.8%.

WE 90 ”Four Bordeaux varieties work as a team in this bottling to deliver aromas of blackberry jam, caramel, roasted cocoa, peppercorn and dark soil. There's great cohesion to the palate, where black cherry, hints of root beer and purple flowers ride buoyant acidity and chalky tannins.”
