A flavoursome wine but no X factor for me.
Blueberry characters are the hero here and they coat the palate thick. A solid wine which is smooth and those who shy away from the spice of Shiraz would appreciate what is on offer. Taut in some respects with a drying finish, I prefer wines with a point of difference.
A solid wine, yes. Easy to drink, yes. Would I buy it, no.
