    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Beautiful nose that reminds me of a Lynch Bages. Herbs du Provence, pepper, plum and a mix of dark fruits. Flavors of black berries, plums and raspberries. medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. This is a $25.00 USD bottle of wine that is drinking way above it’s pay grade. Another example of there are not great wines, only great bottles. Drink or hold. Amazing. Outstanding almost.

    NOTE: this is one of two bottles we purchased at the winery in South Africa and brought back with us so provenance was impeccable. (93 points)
