November 5/06 with J3, Haggis and some Argentinian food. Bright red colour with a huge nose of raspberry. Silky mouthfeel, full bodied, lively acidity with pure red fruit flavours and a long finish. Modern style and the 15% alcohol isn't noticeable. 96 points.
December 2/06 with Mimik, Vinaigre and a few friends at La Forchetta. Slightly translucent, garnet coloured wine. Nose seems a little muted with some raspberry and clove aromas. Full bodied, well balanced with red berries and spice on a deliciously long sweet, slightly hot finish. 95 points.
