Steve (84): The packaging is very impressive. A very heavy elegant bottle must build expectations. However the contents are rather underwhelming since it is a simple smoky fruity cabernet with mild aromas of blackberry fruit with milk chocolate and mild oak spice notes. The palate is very soft with little bothersome tannin and simple fruit flavour and not enough acid for balance. Decent length and quite quaffable. Chill well and enjoy on its own. Tasted October 2016.
