    Pleasant cedary baked raspberries and a slight dustiness that brings to mind old cellars. Medium bodied and easy to drink

    Like having a picnic of ripe blueberries and raspberries dusted with white pepper, sitting in a field overgrown with wild herbs. Fruity, yet dry.

    Spicier than naturist ramble through a cedar forest in search of bramble fruit. A big wine, overwhelming the senses momentarily, then actually leaving you feeling refreshed and tingling from the experience. To be approached with care and due caution, but rewarding too.

    Fresh cherry fruit, on the nose and palate, crunchy tannins to give it some structure, and a hint of cherry stone.

    Wonderful, aromatic, dark luscious fruit and a gravely, black, intense spiciness that rounds out The flavour. Lovely

    Ripe fruit with a strong redcurrant andb lackcurrant leaf. Lots of acidity and freshness with the ripe fruit, and soft tannins. Arguably there is a slight hollowness to The fruit as I'm drinking it without food and would benefit from something of a fresh, red fruit character. Pleasant drink with great conversation
