Every market trip, I take a flyer on a small producer. This one is a good QPR producer. Stuart is the Owner/Winemaker and is not flashy, very straight forward and salt of the earth. His wines are nicely made and at a very good price point. I think this is $20 in the US. Ripe, ruby, big lush, blackberries, dark chocolate, black licorice, dark cherries, deep medium intensity spices on the nose. Blackberries black raspberries, black plum, warm spices of; clove, cinnamon & nutmeg, mocha, black pepper, underbrush, stem inclusion, medium plus tannins, slightly tarry, good acidity and a very nice quality long finish for $20.

This wine wants a steak or rich mushroom bouillabaisse. Pepper, blackberry. Hello, autumn!

It had its moments. But I didn't love it.
