Above avearge concentration but there is notable bell pepper on the palate. If you can get past that cool climate,...

Pepper, tobacco and cherry. Smoothness increases with each glass. This wine is a superb value, as good as forty dollar wines from the same region.

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

If you don't mind the black tea, bell pepper dominance it's a nice wine

The wine features oak, bell peppers, twigs, plum, tobacco leaves, black cherry, black tea, turmeric, anise and leather. Medium+ body with dry tannins, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

This vintage is Cab dominated which explains the predominant green notes. I prefer the 2011 vintage as it's more complex. See my earlier review on that vintage.

Drink now or over the next 5-8 years on its own or pair it with steak and spiced asparagus.

Tasted: 17 Oct 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10 Total: 17.5/20

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