Not the most complex as of now but very well-structured and full of pleasure. Ripe aromas of bumbleberry jam. Lovely on the palette with a very silky mouthfeel. Wonderful spicy finish too.

A big, fairly powerful red with very ripe fruit and firm tannin. Nicely accented with some pepper and herbs. A lot of flavour and depth for only $18. Fine wine. Tasted Jul 2021.

The descriptions from the experts were spot on. Rustic feel with good depth. Good value indeed at this price.
