Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: Easy to drink featuring notes of pine needles, blackberry, raspberry, truffles, cloves, blackcurrant, cassis & radicchio. Medium+ body with medium tannins, good acidity & medium+ length.

Negatives: Has some bitterness (mustard greens) & a touch watery. Nose is better than the taste. Drink now on its own or pair it with tenderloin steak.

Tasted: 6 June 12

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
