faint red, hints of orange, in the color. red fruit, cherry, strawberry, earth, dust, spice, on the nose. medium acid, on this fruit-packed finish. eight at the tasting, agreed that this was a young wine.
I absolutely loved this wine, and was my WOTN amongst 18 others on the table. Bouquet that smelled of carmelized sugar ... then, on the palate, explossive strawberry jam flavor -- but without coming across as jammy. Drinking fabulously right now. No score, but my gut impression tells me somewhere around "92"
After an hour of air the fruit opened up, and it's a very pleasant easy drinking dinner wine. Medium ruby color, no tannins evident, light body. Cherry fruit, nice acid. Almost Burgundian - elegant and bright. More age probably won't improve it.
