“A spicy and peppery shiraz with blackberries, stems and hints of herbs and green tobacco. Very varietal. Medium body. Medium, round tannins with tension and focus. I like the almond-flavored underlay.”
— James Suckling, Oct 2022
“Aromas of wild herbs, red and black fruit, suede and bark. Full-bodied with velvety tannins. Rich black fruit on the palate, with good intensity. Pleasantly straightforward.”
— James Suckling, Oct 2022
