Quote – “Effusive anise, horse blanket, and stewed plums drive the nose on this inky tinged red. It’s full bodied and immediately velvety on the palate with complex dark fruit flavours and earthy notes that mingle with dusty tannins. A bold yet well-structured wine” - about vintage of 2014 (Ultimate Wine Challenge 2016, USA)
