A tilt at a new breed of Clare red wine, though it has been since 2016, or at least since then for me. It’s cabernet, cabernet franc, grenache, malbec, carignan, sciacarello from three vineyards, drawn together to produce a regional red. Clever. Clare cabernet and shiraz solo can fall short at times, alone.

Medium weight, cinched with fine, powdery, graphite-laced tannins, perfume of dark berries, maraschino cherry, sweet herbs, cranberry, peanut brittle with similar flavours. Lots on. Lots to like. Quite ripe in its profile of fruit, primary fruited, lots of flavour, bright too. It’s easy drinking, a great load of pleasure with each glass. There’s a sense of hedonism here. 92 Points, Mike Benny - The Wine Front.
