Dark ruby color. Aromas of pomegranate, graphite and beef. Cherries and cranberry on the pallet with touches of dried herbs and black pepper on the finish. For a relatively young wine, tannins were mild and silky. Very expressive and easy to drink. Really good value ($12 price.). Very well made.

Sip of wine after dinner at home, plumper style, plush red-berried fruits, generosity of flavour and supple ripe tannins. It has structure fresh cranberry, red currants and a sweetness It’s reminiscent of red liquorice and white chocolate. Raspberries and strawberries initially combine, a generosity of energetic red fruits. Pink peppercorn spice is scattered amongst the fruit and a violet-based floral allure. The palate features red plum, exotic aniseed and candied fennel adding to the vibrant fruit mix that the nose suggests and unsurprisingly carries through to the palate. A slipperiness in texture, a succulence in acid profile and an elastic bounce on the palate. Subtle brioche/croissant pastry-like texture we have to assume is evidence of oak-derived maturation but still taste of tannins

Visually dark purple with aromas of dark berries’ sauce. On the palate a bit acidic and short finishing. Not as described on the label. Great value for a daily wine it is suitable.
