This offers good fruit depth, warmth and generosity for $14. Nothing too heavy, soupy or hot - indeed has some...

A sweet, confectioned, candied, caricature of a wine with pure wood and prune juice flavour. Tasted December 2014.

Ripe, jammy bouquet, with plum, cherry pie filling, blackberry, menthol, smoke, vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of green olive. The ripe plum continues on the palate, but there is loads of tart cherry and raspberry to balance the ripeness, along with clove and black pepper spice. Given the relatively low alcohol (12.5%), it has surprising presence and a supple, full mouthfeel. Lots of well-integrated tannins. Decent length. An interesting wine to try with cheesy pastas.
