Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

Nothing exciting about this wine.

Positives: This wine features lots of cedar, blackberry, cocoa, blackcurrant, graphite, turmeric and leather. Medium+ body and tannins with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: Too much oak.

Drink now or over the next 3 years on its own or pair it with T-Bone steak.

Tasted: 5 Sept 2013

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

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
