Medium minus garnet in colour with a medium intense nose.

Positives: This is an easy drinking wine that has soft tannins, but still has enough acidity not to make it flabby. Has nice spices of rosemary & oregano. You can drink on its own or pair it with BBQ lamb chops. Drink now.

Negatives: I believe it's past it prime. I would have liked to have tasted it a year or two ago. A little oxidative now.

Tasted: 12 Sept 11

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 9.5/10, Total: 18/20.

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
