Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Positives: An elegant wine featuring cedar, blackberry, blueberry, cassis, green & black peppercorn, turmeric, graphite, cranberry & suede. Medium to medium+ body with medium tannins & acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives. Some heat from the 14.5% alcohol.

Interesting Point: Pretty bottle.

Drink now on its own or pair it with tenderloin steak.

Tasted: 22 Dec 12

Score: 9/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 18/20
