Deep dark red core with black shaded edges and a dark red hue. Delicate violet like aromatics intermix with red cherry, hints of rhubarb, sour cherry, dried herbs, earth and spicy vanillin cedar. The elegant palate carries light body weight with sour cherry and rhubarb flavours melding into clove, subtle earth and spicy vanillin cedar. Bright tangy like acidity and fine grained tannins with a savoury mid length conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
Very ‘natural’ feeling wines from Thousand Candles these days. I like it.
Cherry, red fruits, a little nutty and earthy, dried herb and perfume. Medium-bodied, fleshy and unforced, kind of spiced ripe strawberry, soft but balanced acidity, a slight orange peel/amaro tang, but again it’s all so gentle and comely, with ripe sooty tannin, maybe something of a coffee bean and hazelnut flavour, and ripples of delicious tannin on a pretty long finish. I really like this. It’s individual and lovely to drink. Drink 2022-2027+
