April 21, 2014 - Garnet, iridescent colour, without sediment. Medium/light body. Slightly floral and vegetal nose with green pepper dominating the palate. Not great. Left me with a headache-sulphites?

It tastes like black currant (cassis), oak and high toast. The body is light/medium. The wine has angular texture. The wine finishes medium.
Lots of charred wood.

January 30, 2014 - Good expressive nose - some cedar and floral. Full feel, smooth. Drinking surprising well. Oak is subtle. Lacks complexity, but very good for price.

June 17, 2013 - Dark Cab with a fruity nose. Cherry palate, meaty, simple with oak in check would go well with a variety of meals. Nice effort, not your everyday red with a decent finish.
