Customer Reviews

  • “Tuesday is the new Friday”
    "Very enjoyable wine. Surprisingly low alcohol (13.5%) for a premium Californian red. Complex and attractive nose of black fruits, eucalyptus, mint, and cloves.

    Fullish body, fresh acidity, with moderate tannins. Additional flavours of chocolate, plum, tobacco and fruitcake on the palate.

    Enjoyed with fillet steak in chasseur sauce - good living, particularly for a lowly Tuesday night!"

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    Top flight Pomerol at a fraction of the price. A glossy insider’s bargain which should reward another two to four years patience, this is a superb, so ft and exotic Merlot with glossy rich blackcurrant tones that mesh smoothly with chocolate and a flicker of spicy liquorice. Tomás Clancy
