Dark purple. Nose filled with green peppers, and forced fruit. Overwhelming upfront fruit with grape bubble yum taste, but the flavor doesn"t last as long. Oaky predictable, a good Christmas gift for the mailman instead of the fruitcake. Beware of 2nd label California. Expected more.
I generally love this wine but I have to say I was a little disappointed in the body on this one. The nose was very nice with presentation of mocha, cherry and a hint of smoke. It was medium bodied on the palate with sweet strawberries and cherries. It had a lot of new world red fruits, soft tannins, and the mocha flavor came through nicely on the upper palate. It finishes long and smooth but it was a little bit awkward on the end. There slight hints of maybe rotten tomatoes? I guess I just was expecting a heavier, satiny body that I've had before in the innisfree. Still, it's a 90 point wine for sure.
