Pop 'Family Reserve' onto a label and you can expect the price to be jacked up a bit. Not here with only 25 bucks called for.
Inviting aromas, I just wanted to keep whiffing away at it. Forest berry tart, red cherry, dark chocolate, dark plums and vanilla essence.
The wine saw six months of oak, a mix of one to four year old French and American. Those aromas gave the perception of a wine with oceans of depth but delivery is a bit lighter than expected and I'm cool with that. It is still quite plentiful nonetheless finishing long and moreish. A good drink and great for the money.
Drink now to five years.
90/100 - Very good
