Review: Visually this wine is deep ruby-red in colour and almost opaque. It is heavy bodied with long legs. The nose is warm and earthy. On the palate it is medium dry wine with heavy berry flavours. And a strong liquorice lingering flavour. At first taste the wine is a bit overwhelming but the pellet get used to the soothing and soft flavours quite quickly.

Review: Visually this wine is deep bluish-ruby-red in colour. It is heavy bodied and almost opaque. The nose is intensely aromatic, with aromas of berries and violets. On the palate it is unexpectedly light with fresh fruit and complex spice flavours. Despite being visually heavy, it makes for a very nice and easy drinking wine on its own.
