Strong purple; the bouquet offers plum, prune and blackberry fruit, the full-bodied palate quickly falling into step; bold flavours, not over-much finesse.

E Minor has changed its tune over the past couple of years ... for the better. Last year's release was good, and this is too. We gave last year's release 90 points, and this comes ever so close t o the same rating. Maybe we're just feeling stingier this year. It's got grip and grunt, dark blackberried flavour and a fresh, clean finish. There's some toasty, coffeed oak here but it's well in check - it's a smart display of winemaking. A tasty drop - one we'd be happy quaffing.

Generous, medium- to full-bodied wine, with blackberry and plum fruit backed by good tannins and subtle oak; pretty nifty for a second label.Value.

Deep, dark and brooding nose - lots of plums. Very rich palate - great length and depth, with firm tannic spine. Quite fresh. "A lovely drink," confirmed one judge.

You have to keep an open mind with wine. If you buy the same wine every year - unless you're very lucky - you'll do really poorly in some years and, of course, really well in others. This wine is proof. Previous vintages haven't been much chop, but dare we say it... E Minor has changed its tune. Well, hello! This tastes coffeed and blackberried and just plain good. There's sweetness through the middle of it and savounness on the finish, and we reckon it will please the tastebuds of a wide range of red drinkers. The alcohol level isn't over the top either. A definite good 'un.

Developed colour; slightly savoury minty notes on a light-to medium-bodied palate; soft tannins.
