Quote – “Juicy and rustic, with restrained raspberry and black pepper notes set against a background of dusty dried thyme and bay laurel. Excellent mid-palate concentration and mouth-wateringly tangy fruit, with cherry pit and sundried tomato notes emerging toward the end” - about vintage of 2015 (2016 Ultimate Wine Challenge, USA)
