Garnet in color with a nice soft red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice vibrant strawberry and rustic notes.

Fabulously ripe and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows black cherry, blueberry compote, floral and warm spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is succulent and fleshy. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully complemented by velvety texture and silky tannins. At its best: now to 2021. Score – 93. (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, June 2018)
