Very good and pleasant.
I expected it to be a bigger wine, but with a cherry nose it was a pleasant find.

Repeat buy, yes.
Run out and stock, no

Medium to medium+ ruby in colour with high intensity on the nose. Positives: Lots of black fruits to go with cedar, anise, ribena, turmeric, pencil shavings, leather, arugula & a touch of spinach leaf on the finish. Medium body, medium+ tannins, good acidity & long length.

Negatives: None.

Interesting Points: The wine is organic.

Pleasant drinking wine that can be drank now or over the next 2 years on its own or paired prime rib.

Tasted: 31 Jan 12

Bordeaux qualities - a little un-refined and sharp/ tannic...but well made. Cherry, Cassis, blueberry, saw dust
