Deep ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

An easy juicy full body red and a best buy at the clearance price

Positives: This wine shows cedar, blackcurrants, anise, dark cherry, cigar box, menthol, plums and arugula. Full body with medium tannins, good acidity, a long length and the 14.5% alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: None

Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with vegetable lasagna.

Tasted: 6 Nov 2013

Score: 9/10, Value: 8.5+/10 (Clearance: 9+/10) Total: 18/20
