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

Full bodied, with meaty black fruits, ably supported by notes of herbs asnd black pepper. Enough firmness and depth to keep it interesting. Gives the sense of sweetness on the finish though I think that this is more owing to the ripeness of the fruit than any significant residual sugar in the finished wine. Nice wine with a good sense of place, and a fine value. Tasted Feb 2013.
