Full bodied

An excellent wine for the price. Tried with trepidation as I opt for Merlot as my wine of choice but this wine is full bodied but not harsh on the pallet. Will definitely buy again.

A nice and unexpected find!

Not for the blackcurrant squash fans, this is a bold wine for more traditional wine drinkers. The gimmicks arent here, but the quality is. Four bottles so far and each one thoroughly enjoyed.

A nice surprise!

This was part of the meal deal on offer, and the only red option. So many of these deals have awful wines included that are not worth bothering with. This one however, will now be a regular on my list especially as part of a deal. It's nice a smooth, and has bags of flavour.

Very surprised

We bought this wine as part of the "Dine in for Two". Under normal circumstances we would not have bought this bottle but we will definitely buy more of this going forward. A powerful, rich flavoured wine which definitely complements red meats, but also lovely on its own.
