Description: Medium ruby in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: Beautiful nose full of bramble fruit pie, cherry & with a light touch pine & cloves. The nose reminds me of wine gummy berries. The taste is similar to the nose but without the sweet pie notes. Nicely balanced, medium tannins, medium body, good acidity & medium+ length.
Negatives: None for the price.
Interesting things: This vintage label is a lot nicer than their old one.
Drink now on its own or pair it with ham & pineapple.
