It tastes like a serious wine indeed. Concentrated fruit, very good depth and long gravelly finish. Good tannins. There is some spiciness to the fruit, and the wine struck some of the others as alcoholic (it was 14.5%). It didn't bother me - I felt it was balanced.
Currently this is under £10 on offer. A great choice if you feel like a step up from your everyday wine.
Jamie Goode has excellent write-ups of Gimblett Gravels here, and Craggy Range here and here - well worth a read.
