Attractive, pungent blackberry, liqueur black cherry and cedar oak nose. Full bodied, firm, well structured wine that is already in balance in its youth allowing an opportunity to drink now or cellar. Black cherries, cedar and a touch of licorice head the flavours on the palate. The wine has a pleasing long finish. Accomplished wine from a winery that is performing exceedingly well. 59% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
