Saturday Walk Around Tasting at The Gourmet Shop, Columbia, SC 1/26/2013 (The Gourmet Shop, Columbia, SC): I suspect 2010 was a good vintage for this region and this producer. This wine is really soft and approachable. Kind of simple in the way we would expect from some or all whole cluster fermentation. The nose is a little shy. The color is a little weak. But when it hits the palate. this is very lively and quit fruit forward for an Old world wine. The fruit is fresh and aggressive. I loved the flavor of maraschino cherry that started off the palate. Mostly red fruit flavors. There is some white pepper spiciness. Just medium bodied. Does not have an awesome finish. Think this wine was designed to drink by itself, and maybe slightly chilled.
