Bright dark plum hue, aromas of black plums, mushroom and chocolate; flavor notes of bright blueberry pie, and black raspberry framed by cinnamon and oak. Opens up with time in the glass to offer its glory as a lively, wonderful food wine.

velvety smooth on the palette, a sort of medicinal cherry on the nose but not like nyquil paired with a little rustic quality. nice overall.

Nice interplay between acidity and sweetness, with a firm tannic structure underlying the whole. Meshed with a beef roast AND cookies for desert, go figure. Its acidity was present and playful, but never ventured off the edge into an unpleasant grating acidity. Also, drank well right out of the bottle. 88/

Bright and clean, with juicy raspberry flavor and vivid acidity, this is a simple, everyday kind of wine. Open it with a mushroom pizza.

Raspberry and blueberry aromas lead to a medium body, with delicious fruit and hints of vanilla and cream. Drink now.
