Medium ruby colour. A hint of cured meats and sour cherry as well as slight tobacco, dried leaf and leather. Savoury cabernet like palate. Dry minty flavours, medium bodied with sticky tannins and a fresh acid finish. Maturing nicely.

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.
