The wine is silky smooth and sings with bright red cherry fruit and subtle savoury cherry pip notes adding depth and interest without detracting from its beauty, it is a wine that can’t fail to put a smile on every face. The ultimate crowd pleaser.

This has plenty of interest and textural detail with an attractive grain to the tannin texture. Plenty of baking spices and a hint of pepper on the nose. It's really succulent. Drink now.

Elegant and plush, with fresh cherry flavors that are supple and smooth, accented by hints of cream soda and red licorice. Offers bright acidity and lingering clove nuances. Drink now through 2026.

A cool note of menthol sits atop the otherwise spicy dark pinot fruit aromas that lead to rounded, supple and seductively textured middle weight flavors that possess good richness while delivering fine persistence on the sappy finale that carries its alcohol with almost no trace of warmth. While this well-made effort might reward a few years of cellaring it's already so good that it could be enjoyed now.
