Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Flowers, spice, black raspberry and fresh cut plum, and herb. Fantastic young wine. Great value. Drink by 2015. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Meaty plums, blackberry, cloves & cinnamon in the nose giving the impression of a dark, brooding wine. the aromas don't lie; this is a deep, dark wine. The taste mirrors the plums and spices in the aroma, with a little tannin and a little heat showing up. This would be a fantastic wine with rich stews, as it can definitely stand up against some fatty meats and rich flavours.
Ryan rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Good value for the money
