Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015)91 pts

The mid-weighted, savoury thrust across palpably dusty tannins is an attractive gesture toward the future of the style. Some red and dark fruits emerge, with a resounding finish of Dr Pepper, beetroot and a bite of wholecluster. Versatile at the table.

Wine Front (2015)90 pts

Salami, spicy, cherries and vanilla. Medium bodied, evenly weighted, nice tannin, fresh strawberried acidity, tobacco bitterness on finish. Interesting. Unusual style.
