It's beautifully balanced, has a rich, textured mouthfeel, and a great finish. It's another brilliant wine from this estate.

Medium-bodied with pure fruits in the mouth plus tons of spicy accents, it has good texture and great juicy acidity, finishing long. 376 cases produced.- EB

There is quite a bit of depth to the fruit, and yet the tannins are less polished than in the other wines in the range. -- Antonio Galloni
