Press/Review: “Deep ruby-red. Very elegant aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, underbrush and graphite. Then wilder in the mouth, with hints of aromatic herbs, ink and flint complementing the dark berry and red cherry flavours on the long finish.”

“I love the glazed cherries and roasted herbs here, in addition to dried plums and liqorice. Full-bodied and very sophisticated on the palate, where juicy and structured tannins frame the red fruit and acidity, carrying it long on the finish. Drink now.” 93 Points, James Suckling
