Nice flavour that goes well with a tomatoe based dish
Wonderful cherry aromas and flavors, with added complexity in leather, oak, and spice notes. Luscious aftertaste, with good acidity. I liked this a lot.
this is a nice wine. not going to jump out of my seat for it. but it is a very easy drinking easy to match with food wine

Lots of character here with rich aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and coffee cream... and a medium, spicy vanilla finish. Always very good.
Offers plummy fruit, with hints of flowers, citrus and light chocolate. Medium-bodied, with a balanced and tasty palate, fine tannins and a clean finish. Structured. Best after 2009.
