Get a grip with this wine, literally! Robust chunky tannins mean you should decant for 2 hours. Opens with lovely black fruit aromas and a touch of cedar spice in the background. Full-bodied, indeed. Rustic in a charming way.

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Some oak resin aromas from cork. Earthy, cedar, dark fruit, and some plum aromas. Fairly straightforward on the palate with dark and red fruits, finishing with pepper and some mocha notes. Full bodied wine. Tannins integrating nicely, but still need more time. This should drink well for at least another 4-5 years. Will be enjoying this with homemade Chicken Enchiladas. Bought at $20. Tasted Mar/2012.
