Banrock Station L. Box 2002

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Smells like beef bouillon and some mushroom, and tastes of plums and berries coated in an oaky veneer. A darkly flavored wine, but a hollow one.

Soft and ripe, with dark berry and black currant at the core, lingering on the finish against hints of licorice and pepper. Drink now.

Ripe raspberry, plum and cherry fruit flavors are balanced by soft oak and velvety tannins.

Light and effusively fruity, with Beaujolais-like berry and floral flavors that echo nicely on the polished finish.

Light in weight, what impresses about this wine is that it doesnrsquo;t try too hard. The cherry-berry fruit is modest, and there are some herbal overtones and peppery accents, but itrsquo;s crisp and clean; an easy quaff for a busy weeknight.
