smooth & full bodied

Nice smooth red with good body, goes well with cheese or dinner, not too heavy with food, would buy again but probably only when on offer.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Terrible

This wine was horrendous - it burnt the throat with its acid and we had to throw away the bottle after a mouthful each. Ocado were very good and refunded me for the bottles I had bought but did not drink. Maybe it was just a bad batch, and others are ok...I don't know. Thank you Ocado!

disappointing

I had the same wine but 2005 it was truely wonderful. Sadly thuis is not the case with this vintage. Ittasts aged but in a bad way not smooth and no real taste. I would not buy again. Not worth the money at all.
