    May 8, 2013 - Seriously what the fuss is all about this wine ? 50$ a bottle for a clean wine that doesn't give anything else that a light-medium body, watery, redfruits-spices combo aromas ? LVMH has invented yet another forgettable juice for labels drinkers.

    March 9, 2013 - pure and top quality Marlborough P.N., strong and nice aroma when open: cherry and other dark fruits. medium(-) body, a little excessive acidity and a little lean but just balanced, not very complex but very easy-to-drink, long and spicy finish. nice wine under this one of top NZ brands.

    color: 4/5; aroma: 14/15; palate: 15/20; overall: 4+3/10
    TOTAL: 90/100

    October 7, 2012 - Floral notes combined with red fruit in a medium bodied palate, full of fruit, refreshing acidity and a bit of heat. A crowd pleaser.
