Raspberry, strawberry, sour cherry, plus a hint of tar are the primetime aromas here. Dry with a pretty dark-fruit core and good aroma replays on the palate. Medium-full bodied with a long, fruit-driven finish. Enjoy with intensely flavoured beef dishes. (VINTAGES panel, March 2012)

Starts with a flowery bouquet. The taste is subtle, a bit dry but quite smooth. It holds its own well after several glasses. At fifteen dollars, this is a very good value.
