Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Spicy vanilla, cigar box, raspberry jam, and alcohol on the nose. Spicy red fruit on the palate with a long tangy finish. Recommend pairing with mild curry dishes, sweet bbq fare, or enjoy on its own. Tasted October 2014. 87 points. Matt Steeves @QuercusVino
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Fruit forward, tart red cherry and berry notes, and a hint of spice. Plum and cherry on the palate. Light tannin, easy drinking.
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby colour with fresh red fruit and spice on the nose. Juicy mouth feel, with rich red fruit, spice with medium acidity and a touch of tannins. An unusual mixture of wines, but noteworthy for the price.
Julia Kelada rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Red cherries, fresh red fruit, strawberries, touch of herb, mild nuance of freshly cut grass.

On the palate, Raspberry tart, tart fresh cherries, logan berries, low tannins, dry mouth good length
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Oct 5, 2014: Medium ruby, candied nose of red fruit, vanilla and baking spice. Sweet plummy palate, with cherry and red berry. A little one dimensional, although the length is good - this would do well as a party wine, made to please a wide audience without breaking the bank.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 78/100 with the following review:

unusual blend that made me curious.The nose almost made me turn away;it reminded me of a spitoon at a busy wine show: spicy and very fruitty but not in a very pleasant way,for my taste,of course.It turned out to be a sweetish wine, with a hint of spices. Definitely will have a market for it,but probably not a couture one. It's more of a companion for watching Murder,she wrote reruns,in a jogging suit...and you have a cold. Hey, it can be fun!
