Dark fruit, blackberry, very silky and great finish. This wine is solid and over delivers for the price.

Great value wine from consistent producer. My first Cabernet from the 2012 vintage and it lived up to the hype I've been hearing since harvest 2012. Very well balanced, blueberry. Medium body, tannins and acid. Stock up on 2012 my friends.

Blackberry in colour. Flavours of Oak hit the tongue first but plum soon followed. A great companion to home made lasagna.

Classic Merle. Not terribly tight. Stands well even without food or accompaniment.
