Black as night in hue with aromas and flavours to match. Layered, robust and complex. Great concentration that's undoing my own.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby in colour, this wine has layers of intense flavours including black berries, blueberry, raisin, savoury notes of mushroom, fresh soil, lavender, and refreshing juniper. Full-bodied, the complex flavours last on the warming, supple finish.
Enjoy today or cellar for 3 - 5 years.
Pairs well with complex dishes, rich in protein with a red wine or tomato-based sauce, and blue cheeses.
Date tasted: April 2014
Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour showing extraction in legs on the glass. A hint of things to follow? Nose hints a developing aromas of dark cherry,blackberry,blueberry,raisin,prune, fig,tomato leaf,vanilla and perfume!!!
Full-bodied and complex. Tannins are evident on the palate. Long length on the warm mouth coating finish. Drink now, suitable for further ageing(to 2019).
Decant 2 hours for best enjoyment.
Roasted red meat, pasta with meat sauce, hamburger with blue cheese melt.
Tasted April 2014

First entry
Meaty and savoury with blackened bacon and black cherry aromas. Not for the faint of heart, or palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
