Natalie's Score: 89/100

Savoury and meaty with a pleasantly bitter finish. Smoky black fruit yet juicy enough for drier meats. Great value.

Meritage food pairings: grilled rare lamb chops.

Medium ruby colour with just a hint of garnet on the edge. Another example of the superior quality of the 2008 vintage. Aromas of black cherry, cassis, woodsmoke, tar and vanilla dominate. Dry and tangy with vibrant fruit and firm tannins on the mid-palate. Medium-full bodied with a well-typed finish. Fruit here is like the Energizer bunny: it just keeps going and going. Cellar it 2-4 years. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.
