It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Deeply coloured with notable floral aromas. Approachable, with delicious dark berry fruit and perhaps a hint of sweetness. The 2010 vintage of this perennial favourite of mine seems a bit less complex and structured than prior vintages, and the finish is just a bit clipped. Still, this shows good regional authenticity and is good value. Tasted April 2013.
