A red blend which, at a guess, has a significant amount of Zinfandel, this Wine works quite well as an everyday cocktail libation. It has red currant and raspberry flavors up front with blueberry in the finish, and has a bit more residual sugar than one might expect.

Deep dark Ruby, purple edges, aromas of odd rustic forest floor spice and some fruit. On the palate jammy tart berry fruit, pepper spice on harsh tannins. Short finish ending with puckering spice. Not very pleasant glass of wine. Pass!

Thick, brambly nose - wet wood, berries. Part of a case from Nakedwines. Thick and smooth on palate, not tannic. Delivers as a satisfying, low key table wine. Points for quality/cost ratio.

Good red blend. On initial taste it has ripe blueberries, boysenberries with underlying taste of cinnamon stick, licorice root and a cola thickness. Great wine. We had this with Asian food that had a good amount of spice and it blended well. Will definitely drink this one again.

A different sort of blend, this red is a little smoky, with a medium bodied acidic tang. The primary flavors are black currant and chocolate, with a slightly dusty coffee finish. This one really benefits from decanting.

It's a winner. Had my doubts. Got a little bite and a hint of cinnamon.

I want to say that it is medium bodied, but can't. Smokey tobacco finish. 2015 vintage - value wine.
