This wine and I got off to a bit of a bad start, in that I paid $29 for it in far north Queensland, whereas google tells me that it is available at $15. At $15, it is quite a pleasant drop. Black in colour, there is a medium intensity aroma of spice, pepper, plum and Christmas cake. On the palate, pepper, medium acidity, a little short of medium length and at times spiky, but overall balanced, alcohol. Hits its price point and perhaps over achieves a little. 84-85 points.
