I was given this wine as a gift, when I visited the tasting room with a relative. While I am in general a big fan of Goosecross, this wine did not do it for me. Muted nose, odd flavors of candied cherry, and what tastes like residual sugar. I am sure that is just glycerol/alcohol making it taste sweet, but it was off putting to me.
That said, the mouthfeel was excellent, and when I reset my expectations (I tend to prefer more austere wines), I found myself quite enjoying this.
If I have the choice, stick to Goosecross's delicious whites, and their higher end reds - the Howell Mountain Cab is consistently amazing, and I always wish I had the spare change to buy more of it.
