The colour was a medium-dark deep red, with moderate legs. This wine had a spicy jammy berry fruit bouquet, and light oak. The taste started with soft dry tannins and spicy oak, and had some full berry fruit with light smoky flavours. It was a soft fruity style with some smooth wood balance.


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.
