|Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Nov 15, 2013: Deep ruby with blackberry, raspberry and smoked paprika, sage, coffee and oak spice on the nose. Palate reveals ripe berry fruit, plum, cherry, smokey/toasty oak and dried herb notes. Good balance of fruit, acid and tannins, with a long berry, smokey finish with a bit of a bitter weedy green note. A little heavy on the oak char for some perhaps, and lacking some elegance. Best with burgers or BBQ meats over the next couple of years.
