The price point has hardly moved in years. Ultra reliable staple of so many BYO nights and pub wine list choices.
Full aromas of cooking spices, plums, cherries, pencils, a lick of sweaty leather and house style oak. Hits all the right buttons with the balance between savoury, stony shiraz and plump giving grenache. Medium-full bodied with the right amount of fresh acidity. Plenty of grip and a decent length of flavour to finish with goodnight kisses of sweet oak. Does little to sway opinions of value.
