Wanda scored this wine: 89/100

Deep red in colour. Pick up blackberries, smoke, vanilla, and plum notes with a hint of oak. Medium bodied, soft tannins with a long finish. Easy drinking wine enjoyed with charcuterie.

A blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (SGM) brings about bold flavours such as smoke, chocolate, black berries, black currant, pepper, cherries. Full bodied with a long finish. Taste great with a roast, ribs or steak/fries. We quite enjoy this wine.

Deep, rich flavours, berry and spice notes and long finish. Reminds me why I've been a Petit Sirah fan for so many years. This wine is lovely.

Delicious cherry and berry aromas. Light in colour (compared to our other pinot noir) and soft tannins. Lovely drinking wine that went nicely with Thanksgiving Turkey dinner.

This wine was purchased while in California. Obvious aromas of pears and lemons. Crisp, refreshing, lighter bodied and kind of tangy. Enjoyed poolside in the hot California heat.
