The colour was a medium brownish ruby red, with moderate legs. The bouquet was quite sharp with spicy cherry fruit. The flavour was smooth with dry smokey wood and spicy cherry fruit. This was a fairly smooth style, quite complex with well balanced flavours.

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.
