89 Points

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - Decanted 1 hr. ahead. Medium-light cherry color. Nice nose of plums, tobacco, leather, strawberry. Brisk and bracing on the palate, as fruit and spice flavors blend nicely in a juicy acid profile. Finishes well with light grip and low tannins. A little lighter since my last sampling, this is a completely respectable midweek bottle of vino, lip-smacking and thirst-quenching. It has modest ambitions and it fulfills them. Really fulfills them. Everybody needs these kinds of wines. At $18 before the discount, a great QPR too.
