Ordered at restaurant. Moderate color and moderate nose dominated by red fruit. Initial taste is red fruit with some darker flavors and a hint of life followed by a decline to a somewhat dull, muddied finish. Pretty simple and unrefined for its price point. Disappointing.
nose: orange leaf and tea, cranberry, mandarin peel
palate: reasonably fruity but very tart, very citrusy, like you squeezed a lemon into an otherwise good wine. too simple for 30 bucks. shows some depth on the fine-grain tannin finish but too little too late i say.
