Big juicy feel. Black current, some red grape maybe even a little blueberry. You do feel the 15% alcohol.

You do not taste the 15.5%, which is a good thing... But nothing notable.

Packs a punch but not overly alcoholic. I tastd red berries with a smooth finish.

Easy drinking wine. Reminds me of fresh berries. Lighter than I would expect from a cab, but not unpleasant.

Still yummy (2020 vs. 2019). Crisp and dry. I taste grape (and not citrus or apples or other fruits... we'll maybe green apples).

Lovely and crisp. Grapefruits! Would be better in summer than in fall or winter.

Dessert wine (or apéro). Not too sweet, nice and light, touch of fruit.

Delicious Burgundy... Not too masculin, not too feminin... Gendre neutral? Would do well with some grilled meats, cheese (not too strong), or simply on its own.

Bold, powerful wine. Sun dried fruits and a certain earthyness.

Disappointed. Wine was slightly tart? None of the deep richness I was expecting.

Deliciously juicy wine... Metallic nose but cherries and black currant on the palette. Heavy enough body, but light enough to go anywhere.

Upon opening it was light, red berries, grape candy (yet not sweet), utterly pleasant... Somehow reminds me of childhood 😃. Lost a bit of the candy experience as it opened up.

Possibly a little young, but seemed to open up a bit with decanting. I tasted plums and bright red fruits. Did not get as much black fruits or spiciness. Still, very drinkable, particularly for the price point in the UK.

Smells like a locker room, tastes like a prune, but somehow magnificent!

Tastes like anxiety... Grapes smuggled across the border... Fantastic story, read about it. Wine is amazing. Tastes of black current and dark cherries. So smooth, it is difficult to stop... Unfortunate because it is so rare...

Very fruity. Cherries. Had a feeling like it was still fermenting. Perhaps too young?

Drinkable wine, but a little on the jammy side... Reminds me of a lighter Californian Cab.

Very drinkable juicy wine. Plums, blackberries and blueberries. Not too long and not too heavy... a steal at the price point.

Nicely balanced... not too sour or heavy on the citrus, yet brings notes of grapefruit on the follow through.
