A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet that offers aromas of tar, sour cherry, blackcurrant, red and black plums, and baking chocolate. The cherry notes shine through on the palate. Elegance and finesse throughout and a tangy edge to the red fruit on the finish. A perfect partner for lamb chops or a meaty pasta. (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)

Inviting, open, fragrant savoury and herbal blend here of merlot and cabernet, clearly a cool climate style wine...

Dark ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

A simple yet pleasant wine. The nose is more inviting than the taste.

Positives: This wine features cedar, sour cherry, blackcurrants, blackberry, radicchio, sage, oregano, leather and cocoa. Medium body and tannins with good acidity and a fairly long length

Negatives: Slightly watery and a bitter note on the finish. However, the next day there was no bitterness.

Interesting Point: The owner of the winery is Count Umbero Capodilista whose family can be traced back to the late 10th Century.

Drink now on it own or pair it with pizza.

Tasted: 30 Sept 2013

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8.5+/10 Total: 17+/20
