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

A nice smooth wine, albeit a little on the sweet side with noticeable high alcohol

Positives: This wine features cedar, maraschino cherry, blackberry, raspberry, cinnamon, plums, milk chocolate and graphite. Full body with medium to medium+ tannins, fairly good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: There’s a lot of heat from the 14.5% alcohol

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with BBQ brisket.

Tasted: 2 May 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8+/10, Total: 16.5+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
