Ben says

★ Good Wine “Light bright colour with aromas of lavender, redcurrants, strawberry, clove, kernel. Grippy berry notes over roasted tomato, vanilla, pepper, spice. Tight, green and lean finish. High acidity. Opens up later to a gamey mix of raspberries, tomatoes, violets, and sage. Not the most put together of vintages but well made wine. ”
