“Wonderfully balanced with ripe red fruits, soft structured tannins and an acidity that complements a long finish.” – Kristy Farrell. “Pleasant red fruits, dried herbs and cedary oak. Hints of mint. Good mouthfeel, fine tannins, integrated acid and oak in the back.” – Christine Ricketts92 pts – Stuart Robinson (Vinsomniac)
Has an immediate appeal, primary fruit, of cherry and strawberry (in fact it immediately had me recalling something like a Cherry Danish). Yet, for that primary fruit, lurking furtively are more savoury elements, dried leaf matter something piney, nigh evergreen forest resinous. Generous acidic presence, gives cut and thrust across the palate. Semblance of fruit, again with savoury nuances. It's not necessarily speaking of anything in particular. It has presence, volume and definite persistence of flavour. A wine of presence, place, personality.
