Wow. This little nugget is bursting with flavour from the get go. Didn't even decant the thing. Absolutely lovely berry combination. Loving this.

Love love love this wine. First got it on to pair with venison haunch at a private dining event. Not a lot of tannins but a nice subtle spice that's enough to get your attention!

Intense berry aroma. Smooth, coat-your-tongue taste. Pretty darn good considering how cheap it was. It's not particularly complex though.

Oaky and spicy. Gives a nice bite (in a good way). At first very simple but develops into something more complex.

Turned out, dressed up, white teeth, shined shoes, perfect hair, well-spoken: the Bill Clinton of wines. You may not like him, but you HAVE to respect him.
