Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Fine, well-priced Shiraz/Grenache blend with aromas of raspberry, mint, plum, sweet herbs (marjoram, basil) and earth notes. Dry with very good fruit replays, plus a hint of mocha. Good balance provided by the silky tannins and gentle acidity. Medium-full bodied with a long, bright finish. My note: Rich black cherry liqueur, blueberry jam and voluptuous texture. Vanilla-spice finish.

Shiraz Grenache food pairings: roast leg of lamb.

Jason Solanki reviewed this wine as follows:

Minty blackberry, raspberry, basil aromas. All follow through on the palate. Finishes with earth notes. Chewy, ripe fruit. Smooth tannins. Not a big wine. Smooth and easy drinking with a medium-long finish.

Very nice need to find more!
