Very smooth wine with no "edges". It's very impressive indeed!

Good value. A very nice fruity nose. Some cherry and a short-medium finish. Not earthy nor complex, so look elsewhere if that's your thing. Runs a bit hot at the end, alcoholic. A simple Bordeaux. Tasted December 2011.

It has rich full fruit flavour and even tell-tale smooth Bordeaux smell and taste, which is nice at the price, but it is very sweet which is too over-powering for me - spend a bit more and get a better Bordeaux.
