The other reviews of this wine are mysterious. It would seem they have consumed a different wine. I would prefer a cheap cask than this wine. It is very disappointing. I thought maybe it was one off bottle, but I purchased a box and several bottles so far have all been the same. It's hard to describe the off taste, but it's not just me. A few of my friends agreed that this wine does not go down well.
This is a great wine, regardless of the price. It's SMOOOOOOTH. Plenty of flavour up front, and did I mention that it's smooth? A lovely finish on the back palete, and it's smooth. My friends have been really impressed with this wine, and some of them are very particular about their wine, but more than once I've heard them refer to it as "smooth". So there you have it. This Byron and Harold is tasty, complimentary to so many foods and, well, it's just really smooth!
I bought this wine to put down but was tempted to have a taste and it was really good, lots of berries and cherries and don't think it will last till 2020, worth a try!l
Excellent drop for s casual dinner. Recommend it.
