Tasting note from First Glass wine retailer in Auckland on 26 May 2016:

"Inky black red with blackberries and raspberries filling the bouquet and its spicy and peppery in the palate with juicy red and black fruits and soft pillowy tannins that have a firm centre. Fresh, clean and youthful with a touch of tar, a charry note to the creamy oak and a juicy disposition to the finish where woody herbs notes are offset by a touch of peach. The back label suggests a long cellaring time but the fruit is so generous I think its will be pretty darn drinkable with char-grilled lamb ribs.  14% alc."
