Expert Reviews

This would be mainly Merlot I’d imagine, with a dash of Cabernet Franc. Importer: Grays Wine

Raspberry, spice, chocolate, herbs and tobacco. Medium boded, ripe red fruit, gravelly kind of feel with some dried herbal bitterness coming through on the finish. Good wine. Regional. Typical. Rating 89 - Gary Walsh, Drink to 2019, Wine Front (19/OCT/2015)
