Mixed spice, rich dark berry fruit and notions of cassis aromas on the nose, this value-packed gem envelops the palate with rich, ripe and rarin' to go creamy-smooth fruit flavours?black plum, black currant and racy pie cherry?robed in lip-smacking tang and baking spice, underpinned by soft tannin, It's medium bodied with good mouthfeel and plenty to like about the finish and aftertaste, as well, it's lengthy, dry with deft balance of tang, ripe fruit and soft tannin. Pour with a prime cut of beef with grilled Portobello mushrooms. Score - 92. (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, July 19, 2020)
