Restaurant Magazine 5 Stars ‘It is delicious: a full bodied, supple wine (although much lighter in colour, not dissimilar in style to a ripe New World Pinot Noir). It is smooth and long on the palate, with a crisp, lightly tannic, persistent finish, tasting of cherry, red currant, plum, cassis, toast, and spicy oak. Very fine quality.'
