The colour was medium ruby red, with a pale edge. The bouquet showed fruity cherry, light spice and smoky wood. The taste had medium cherry fruit, and a peppery tannic finish. This wine was quite fruity but with some wood, pepper and savoury balance.

(Rating)

Note 1 I am not really a wine expert (just an enthusiastic amateur), so please don't take my recommendations as anything more than a rough guide to these wines. I can take no responsibility if you buy a lot, on my recommendation, and then regret it!

Note 2 You may not agree with my evaluation of these wines as a lot of this is quite subjective. I tend to put a lot of emphasis on complexity and intense characteristic flavours and bouquet, so if you disagree you might just have different priorities.
