Karen says: 

For me personally, Capitalisme Rouge has long been passed over for its younger sibling, Wah Wah Light - a firm house favourite in the bar, not solely because of its ultra goes-down-like a white and looks (and tastes) a bit like Ribena, glou-glou drinkability. How wrong I was to repeatedly reach for an albeit cordial, pseudo cordial when I could be on the full fat, debonair first born?  The DNA of Tracey's winemaking resonates in this blend of Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir; the carbonic juiciness of sour cherries and blackcurrants offer an insight to the standard family traits, yet here the fruit is firmer and complimented by worn leather, quenching tannins of tea leaves and with a sotto voce utterance of tobacco and menthol. This is Wah Wah, all grown up - older, wiser and with a more complex story to tell;  it's not without its vices, but that only makes it all the more affable.
