4.5 STARS & BEST VALUE BUY, Winestate Magazine, May/June 2018

The Real Review, reviewed by Nick Butler, May 2019, www.therealreview.com
"Lifted, ripe raspberries with licorice and cloves. A primary, juicy blend with a sweetly-fruited mix of red and purple berries. It's crunchy, with grainy tannins on the finish. Great value"
