This is my awakening wine - it broke me out of the Cab / Shiraz funk I found myself in some time ago. Forever grateful to William Allen for producing this super elegant bottle of loveliness.

Typical of William's style: properly ripe, no obvious oak. Fruit & earth. 100% enjoyable

Outstanding! A cherry-cranberry-herb note with lean tannins that lightly coat one's cheeks and are a surprise after the rich and savory aromas.
