The colour was strong deep ruby red. There was a strong spicy cherry and smoky vanilla wood bouquet. The taste showed full smooth cherry fruit, savoury and earthy flavours, and dry tannic finish. This was a complex wine with intense savoury and fruit flavours and nice balance Wine Estate magazine gave it 5 stars, and it won gold at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards.


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.
