Wine tasting notes

This ruby-red coloured wine wafts aromas of red berries and intriguing oriental spices. Cherries, and strawberries come through on the soft and fruity full-bodied palate, underlain with gingerbread and garrigue. A beguiling wine that represents terrific value!.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (NV) - 87 pts

Wine Advocate #197 Oct 2011 - Robert Parker - As for the inexpensive wines, one of his creations is his non-vintage Little James Basket Press, which is created from a solera system that he started in 1999, so it tends to have about 50% of the most recent vintage (in this case 2010) blended with a little from each of the previous vintages between 1999 and 2009. It is a real fruit bomb, with a dark ruby purple color, loads of raspberry, chocolate and black currant fruit, silky tannins and a slightly evolved style due to the solera system. It is a winner, especially at the humble price it sells for.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (NV) - 88 pts

May 2012 by Josh Raynolds - Bright purple. Precise, aromatic nose of cassis, cherry and lavender. Tightly wound on the palate, with a firm mineral spine giving clarity and lift to the dark berry and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes with gentle tannins and good focus. Quite grown-up for an entry-level wine; I've been seeing quite a bit of this wine in restaurants around the country lately.
