Lovely sweet plums with floral and peppery undercurrents. Juicy ripe red fruits on elegant medium bodied palate. Soft tannins with a long finish. A wonderful cool climate red drinking extremely well and a bargain. Merlot 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 28% Cabernet Franc 18%

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.
