Stephen reviewed this wine:

Tasted Sept. 15th, 2018. Colour dark ruby red. Legs thick. Aromas and flavours of, black cherry, plum, blackberry, black licorice, cured meat, smoke. Taste extra dry, medium plus body, dark fruity plus, balanced with tannin and alcohol. Finish long and complex. Stays with you on the palate for awhile. I like this wine very rich with fruit and compelxity. Recommend letting stay open for awhile. Can use a slight chill 18C to bring out flavours. Made to drink now or over next two years. Pair with BBQ or spanish tapas.

Tasted Sept 13th 2018. Colour bright ruby red. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of red fruit, currant, strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, red plum, wood smoke and spice. Taste extra dry, medium body, full on red fruit all over the palate, cedar soft tannin balanced with the fruit. Mouthwatering, medium alcohol. Finish long fruit and spice finish. I like this blend. The wine would match well with lamb dishes. Good value. Recommended try. It is an organic and biodynamic wine that has a nice fruity taste.

Tasted Sept 3, 2018 Colour Deep Pink. Legs medium plus to thick. Aromas and flavours of, orange peel, tangerine, marmalade, hibiscus. Taste dry plus, medium plus, lots of citrus peel fruit, mouthwatering, well integrated alcohol gives the wine a richness and full bodied experience. Finish long with complex citrus and herbal floral character. For me this is the premier rose wine. I like this stuff so I am a little prejudice in my review. I like to have one or two bottles every summer. Paired with cedar planked salmon it is just wonderful in my opinion. Highly recommended try.

2004 Chateau Angelus St Emilion Grand Cru Classe because it was so seductive and tasty.

First Wine

I think it was a home made wine made by our Yugoslavian neighbour when I was a teenager.

Unusual Wine Experience

Having the former wine manager of Rothchilds winery pair the wines for a dinner at Cap Maison in St Lucia. It has to be one of the best dining experiences I have had.
