Susan reviewed this wine:
Everything I read said this was a light red wine, but the first sip packs a hell of a wallop. I've read recommendations that it be served with a meal of pig's feet, but I opted for a steak. After the wine has had a chance to aerate a little you can taste layers of flavour. This is the first time I can honestly say that I can taste layer upon layer of flavour in a wine. It's got some berry, something generically herbal, and, well, some other flavours I can't pin down. But, within the 3rd or 4th sip, I lost all the layers and got a tannin tang. A subsequent sip gave me the flavours again. All this really just boils down to this: this is a great wine if you want to sit with someone you love and talk about wines. You can have a sip, share what it is you're tasting, and then have another sip and it won't taste exactly the same. You'll be talking for an hour about the wine if you concentrate on it. If all you want to do is relax, eat, drink and be merry, the wine is okay too.
