The colour was medium-deep red, with a pinkish edge, there was moderate sediment. There was a slightly spicy plum fruit bouquet, and light vanilla oak. The taste showed smooth oak and fruity plum and berry flavours, with a soft dry finish. This was a fruity smooth style with light oak and mushroom 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.
