Has a good fruit forward note and taste but is flat and tasteless at the end.
I found this wine to be a velvety compliment to the sesame seed incrusted tuna I enjoyed it with. It's not a bold wine and it's finish was a tad light at the end but the compliment to the meal was excellent. Very nice nose, looked great in the glass. A wonderful buy for "regular" drinking at around $15 a btl.

Wine Tasting NotesThis wine has a delicate ruby color and an elegantly perfumed wild berry bouquet reminiscent of raspberries, blackberries and black cherries, along with plummy notes. A versatile and easy-drinking wine that will perfectly accompany your summer BBQs, as well as indoors; roast meats (pork, duck, and chicken), terrines and pts, or just a platter of cheeses.
An intense golden yellow robe and a delicate bouquet of white flower and fruit characterize this wine. It is fresh and refined, expressing as much the roundness of the Chardonnay as the finesse of the Viognier. The alliance creates a good balance.
Wine Tasting NotesDeep garnet. Pronounced spicy floral notes can be found on the nose and on tasting we have a wine which is powerful and round yet with balanced tannins. On tasting, fruity flavours of raspberry and spice reveal themselves giving us a wine which should be cellared for a couple of years before reaching its peak.
