SKU 767749002039


This is a great value comfort red. It's reflective of the warm 2016 vintage with plum, black fruits and liquorice. It's quite complex for a wine at this price point with a good backbone of acidity and attractive earthy undertones. The oak is well integrated with medium level tannin, resulting in a wine that drinks well now but will also cellar for the next 5-10 years.

Wine SpectatorA big mouthful of chunky, rough-and-tumble tannins provides a firm backbone to the blackberry, blueberry and dried cherry flavors, with shades of cedar and dried herb adding complexity. Delivers plenty of charm amid the tannins. Drink now through 2035.
