Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Crowd pleasing, juicy, fruit forward. Ripe blackberry, strawberry with a smooth finish. Pairs well with pizza or burgers. Tasted 2016 vintage in April 2018 on World Malbec Day 2018. 88 points
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Blackcurrant and blueberry aromas with earthy beets, violet, and a touch of cedar and sweet spice.

Dark berry flavours follow through on the palate as well as cedar and sweet spice. It is full bodied with an espresso finish. This would pair well with grilled meat.

Tasted May 2018.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Always a winner, the oak is a little prominent right now but nothing a good marinated steak can't mop up. The fruit is almost candied, with cherries, blackberries and sassafras notes. 88 Points.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Sweet blueberry and milk chocolate cinnamon. Plush and straightforward. Good value for BBQ season!
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted April 14th, 2018. Colour ruby red medium clear. Legs medium minus. Aromas and flavours of, fruity cherry, delicious apple baked, spice and cloves. Taste, dry, dark fruit and mouthwatering, medium mouthfeel, chalky tannin. Finish short plus with chalky fruit. Easy drinking wine, good value. Food pairing I had canned corn, jasmine rice and chicken legs ( soy,honey,ketchup and garlic, oil) baked. No problem with the corn and rice. The wine actually tasted better with the fat flavoured chicken legs.
