Really smooth and drinkable. Goes down a little too easily actually. Fruity but in a subtle way. Would definitely drink again!
My wife and I picked up a bottle of this at a Denver-area shop for a real steal (~$19). After decanting, it drank amazingly well. As a previous reviewer said, it was very smooth. While it seemed (and we're still novices) to be a lower tannin and lower acidity wine, it did seem complex enough to age well for the next 5-10 years. We have family members who prefer a wines of this character. We're thus led to believe that this could be a nice staple of family dinners and small gatherings. Overall, we were blown away by the value we received at our low price point. This wine drank like a much more expensive Super Tuscan. Because of that, we went back and bought two cases to cellar. We'll report back in a year or two with an update.
