The quality is certain but so too is the creep of warming alcohol. Silken raspberry, plum, blackberry and saltbush flavours team deliciously well, the slip of integrated tannin judged just so. It feels fine and soft throughout; the warmth you need to be in the mood for. Fruit quality here though is superb.
